You could always take a reading again if it hasn't been to long or fermentation hasnt been going for awhile. If it is a low OG reading, boil some DME for 15 minutes and add it in, maybe 2 pounds? Otherwise it will just be a session beer, low abv.

That will raise the abv, but won't offset the bitterness from the hops. That sugar will ferment right out. Was your OG really as low as your first reading 1.03?

FYI, beer turned out not bad, definitely not my favorite, but definitely drinkable. A bit bitter but not too much. Lacked in body and had an overly citrus flavor due in part of too much amarillo hops.
