dubbel grain bill: aromatic, special b, or both?

So the jamil z recipe I found online uses both, but I've also seen some with one or the other? Any thoughts or stories? Im planning on using some pilsner malt plus Munich and dark Candi syrup.

Too much carapils? what happens?

I just ordered a homemade recipe from AustinHomebrew. Accidentally got 1.5 lbs of Carapils in the recipe bag, instead of 0.5, and noticed it too late to correct it.
