According to the single fare finder Whitechapel to Gatwick Airport, the “default route” is £8.50 offpeak.

If I tap in at 15:59 and tap out thereafter, would I be charged the offpeak fare?

Where should I change when travelling from Whitechapel to Gatwick in order to get the default fare?

Yes

Change at New Cross/ New Cross Gate and again at London Bridge, or change at Norwood Jn/East Croydon.




e.g.
1601 Whitechapel
1633 Norwood Jn

1639 Norwood Jn
1643 East Croydon

1649 East Croydon
1705 Gatwick Airport


If you miss the 1601, it's quicker to go via London Bridge.

Does the same fare apply using the District Line and changing at Blackfriars or Victoria?

If you interchange between LU/NR at Blackfriars, Victoria etc you will be charged the higher mixed mode fare.

The £8.50 fare is NR only.

You'd need to change at Farringdon rather than Victoria or Blackfriars to get the default fare, as there are no barriers between tube & National Rail platforms at Farringdon.
