Default abv calculations

Hey guys i am a new all grain brewer that needs a little help. I did my forth batch of all grain beer and by far it has turned out to be the best beer i have ever done and actually had (Is that the beer talking????). On day one my og was 1040 ,it was supposed to be 1050ish, so i messed up, to counter act the lower og i added 500 grams of honey while primary fermentation (Pasteurized and diluted with 500ml of water) was at its peak. My FG was at 1008 so what do you guys think my alcohol content is? This was a 5 gallon batch...

Do you have the original recipe you used? Do you use beer smith? I can plug it all into beersmith and see if there's a way to figure out the abv for you with the addition of honey.

Congrats on the beer!

In a 5 gallon batch 1.1lbs of honey post boil would add 7-8 points. 1.047 to 1.008 would be around 5.1% ABV.
