Default Just started a boil, need some advice asap!

Good evening sirs and madams, normally when i sign up for a forum i go through the proper introductions but at the moment, I think i got into a little bit of trouble. Heres whats going on:

I went to my local brewing supply and being a noob, I purchased an ingredients kit. Brewcraft USA Brutal IPA. Being green as i am, i thought it would have all necessary ingredients.....well....half way through heating my specialty grain, i realized there is no yeast!!

Question is, do i stop here? The Grain just finished and now its time to move on to adding the 1st DME. Should i stop here? Or finish the whole cook and run to the supplier first thing in the morning? Thank you in advance, i hope someone can help!

I would finish it up. Make sure everything is super clean/sanitary and seal it up tight and pitch the yeast when u get it

Finish your brew. If you can, research the "no-chill" method. Basically, brewers are putting the hot wort in a sealed jug/fermenter, letting it cool overnight, then pitching the yeast when cooled. Go for it!

And I'd suggest a dry yeast such as US-05 since there's no time for a starter.

I second this. I think that's a Rogue Brutal bitter clone, would probably need a starter with one pack/vial liquid. One pack of US-05 should be good.

ok I'm mid boil. Got a quick question. I am following the insteructions given with the box. I found when i should add the Bittering Hops, then the flavoring hops, and at the end, the aroma hops.

Question is, i have 1 package labeled for "Dry hops" but no instructions as to when to add them... any idea?

You add the dry hops after fermentation is complete. Just throw them right into the fermenter.

You sure there is no yeast? Usually the purpose of a kit is having everything needed in the box.
