The user manual for the Audio Box iTwo says not to use dynamic mics with the phantom power on, yet I will almost always have a condenser mic on for vocals. Although previous questions say it’s ok, will the phantom power not damage the dynamic mic?

Many dynamic microphones can be used regardless of 48v enabled.  However, some are very sensitive and should not be used with phantom power enabled.  

It depends on the microphone.  Check the documentation for your mics.
