Should be fine as long as you are ok with a few particles in your beer. It won't affect the flavor or anything.

If you are worried, cover your bottling bucket with something sanitized and cold crash the beer for 12-24 hours then bottle... that will help drop out the rest of the particles

If you have already primed, it should be a big issue, just once you bottle make sure the bottles sit in the mid 60s to carb up.

thanks guys!
I had a freak out, but once i started bottling, you were right it all just settled on the sides of the bucket.

You can always do the nylon filter on the end of the racking cane when dealing with a lot of hop debris..
