Default Ranger IPA Extract Clone

So, last night I brewed a Ranger extract clone recipe that called for 2#'s of cane sugar which I forgot to add. Will this have any adverse effect on the beer itself? It still smelled great and fermentation has started less than 12 hours after pitching the yeast.

The recipe called for an OG of 1.061 and my OG came in at 1.051 without the 2#'s of cane sugar fwiw...

Ranger contains a lot of sugar for that signature dryness. For an extract version, you would need that sugar even more to help combat attenuation problems and taste more like the original beer. Go ahead and dissolve the sugar in a bit of boiling water. Cool it down (keeping everything sanitary) and pour in the primary. Immediately cover.

Exactly what I would have done if I forgot to add the sugar.
I almost forgot to add in half my dme and a lb of dex at the end of the boil of my last batch of hefe.

C120 is quite much for this beer, especially 1/2 lb of it. Will taste like a sweet caramel raisiny ipa with a good deal of bitterness, but not enough aroma hops. Needs more late hop additions and dryhop, less hops at 60. Lastly, that's like 24% sugar in the recipe. Might want to reduce that to 15%. Doubt you'll hit 1.007 with a 2 lbs of 2-row, mostly extract, and WLP051. This would be a partial mash beer by the way, not extract since your using a mashing 2-row. What temp did you mash at?

Plus, I thought Simcoe was a much bigger part of Ranger than this recipe shows...am I wrong? Hope not. I just brewed what I hoped would be a maltier version, but with the Ranger hop profile and I used more Simcoe than this...
