Default IBU question

I need to pay more attention to packaging, lesson learned.
I brewed a wheat beer with Mt Hood hops, the recipe and anline sources showed Mt hood to be 3.9 AA calculations got me around 13 IBUs which from what I can read is about right for this style beer,
Problem is after brewing I took a closer look and the Mt Hood hops I bought are actually 6.1 AA and will put me closer to 20 IBUs.
Question, how much difference in taste between 13 IBU and 20 IBU ?

Kind of a lot, but no big deal really. Live and learn.

Just to be safe, send a few bottles to me and I will assure its safety.

You should consider yourself lucky that isnt in the 80s' now that would make it a little hoppy
