According to the experts finishing both sides is not necessary to prevent cupping. There’s lots of reasons why wood will change its shape when it’s brought in doors.
The only way I know to take a cup out of a board is rip it in half flatin one face then send it through the planer. We do this as many times as needed and sneak up to its final thickness.
Trying to force the wood flat is futile.
