Default Added sugar too early in the boil.

I made a blackberry wheat ale the other night. It called for a packet of sugar and some hard candy sugar to be added at the last 5 minutes of the boil. I mis-read the instructions and added at the beginning. I realized it half way though, so I added 1/3 cup of dextrose at the end, just for the hell of it.

It's in the fermented and bubbling away.

Is this is a big deal, is this batch screwed, and general thoughts on this would be great to set my mind at ease.

Thanks.

No problem, might be a little darker than intended.

The sugars might caramelize a bit, but its nothing to worry about. The extra sugar at the end shouldn't do much either, because its such a small amount, but it will kick up the abv by almost a noticeable amount.
