Hey guys, I was brewing a Witbeer last weekend (my first non-Mr Beer adventure) and I was supposed to add half of the malt extract 15 minutes before the end of the boil, along with half of the hops and the spices.
Well, I forgot to add that malt extract.
I realized what I did, so at the end of the 60 min boil, I added the other half and boiled it for another 15 minutes.
Did I mess up my beer?

No, you did not mess up your beer.

It is OK to add all your malt extract right at flameout, cover and steep for five to ten minutes to be sure all the microbes are dead microbes.

Adding spices and hops, you want to get those close, but this ain't rocket science.

You didn't mess it up. If anything, it might end up a little more bitter than the recipe calls for, but it will probably be just a minor difference.

You can relax-- it will be fine. And start thinking about your next batch!
