Pass is not a LA. I think 5 could be bid. A question is whether partner would bid 6 over this.

Does a BIT always imply UI
The answer to the question is no. BIT means partner has something to think about - if he makes a very strange bid then there is no UI. In this case you were clearly thinking about bidding or doubling, so there was UI. I would bid 4NT as West - whether pass ...
