Technically, your 9 lbs of LME is more than 9 lbs of DME (Dry). There's a ratio I posted as a chart somewhere on this forum. See if you can locate it or maybe someone else knows where it is.
So, your beer will have a higher alcohol content than 9 lbs of DME, but it will also be sweeter.
Did you compensate for the additional sugar/malt? Probably not. Most people forget to do that too.
You may have to end up dry hopping some. Start reading up on the process now and you'll be ready should you decide to go that route.
