Default starter help/question

I am planning on brewing Saturday, an IPA og=1.078. I'm using white labs cal ale wp001. Is it too late to make a starter? Should I buy another vile and pitch both to be safe? I've never made a starter before but can tomorrow mid day. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

My starters are normally fermented out in 16-24 hours. Start now,step it up tomorrow, pitch the whole thing, you should be OK!

Thanks for the quick reply...I'm gonna start it tomorrow and I think I can change my brew day to monday. Now I just have to research how to make one. I've only used wyeast activator pack before and neer used a starter.

Your starter will be fine if you start it tomorrow morning or early afternoon.
