Default I added too much corn sugar in my ipa toss it or ferment it?

I wasnt paying attention to my scale and I added about 1.75 lbs of corn sugar to an ipa that I made with a grain bill of 9lbs 2 row, and 1lb each of carapils and crystal 40. Is it worth it to keep this going (I'm boiling right now) or should I toss it and start over tomorrow?

Ferment it! With that much crystal & carapils I wouldn't be too worried.

How much did you intend to use? I would think it'll dry your beer out a bit but I definitely wouldn't dump it. Add some more hops and call it a Double IPA

I didnt ask for criticism. A simple dump it or no would be appropriate.

You forgot an apostrophe in "wasn't"

Seriously though, keep it. I'm sure it will still turn out well.

Keep it, might end up a little on the dry side but that's probably not enough sugar to cause "cidery" flavors.

What was your hop schedule?

What was your mash temp?

Already answered, so I feel free to comment now. I met the prerequisite.
