Default Is this over attenuation?

I was not sure if this should go in Yeast / Ferment or AG forum so I apologize in advance if it needs to be moved.

First AG Irish Red 1/20/13

OG was 1.054 (spot on according to BeerSmith)

FG was supposed to be 1.010 to 1.012

Hydro reading after 3 wks in primary 1.007-ish

Double checked and then triple checked with refractometer (and some calculations) and got 1.008-ish

So as a semi-noob, how does this affect what appears to be a great looking and tasting beer?

It'll be drier and probably have less body than expected. Might be a touch thin on the palette, but otherwise should be just fine.

Sounds acceptable and delightful.
