Would it make your beer crazy bitter? No.
But seriously, no need to dump it. I had a beer once that, when you went in for a sip, all you could smell was farts (sulfur.) Left it alone at room temp for a couple months and it was stellar.
And yes bitterness most definitely fades.
However I'm shocked at how bitter you're perceiving it. I've made a 5 gallon batch of Cascadian Dark with an entire pound of 6.9%aa hops and it was not only drinkable but delicious.
