Default Austin Home Brew Mini Mash

I am doing my first mini mash today. (2nd brew overall). Its a Fat tire clone. I did not realize that Austin gave you 1 oz. of each of the required hops. Can someone confirm this for me?

The bittering hops required 3/4 oz of the hops but I put in the whole ounce. I will do the correct thing for the flavor and aroma hops, but can someone tell me how much the excess bittering hops will affect the taste?

Hope I didnt mess this one up too bad.

I had the same thing on the red I just made, except I used the correct amount of bittering hops and the whole ounce of aroma and flavor hops. I figure 1/4 oz. can't make much of a difference.
