I brewed a summer ale this past Sunday and forgot to add the second half of the DME which I was planning on adding towards the end of the boil. So I added it right after flame-out and stirred until it dissolved in the wort. Should I be concerned?

Thanks.

Nope, no concerns at all with that. It was added while the wort was still plenty hot to kill off any nasties so you're good.

May be slightly more bitter.

Ok, I did figure it may be slightly more bitter but I'm ok with that. However, I did add 5lbs of pureed mangoes after flame-out while the wort was around 200F.

Also fine, that's plenty hot to clean the mango. Just be aware that you might get an FG a little lower than you expect because of the fruit sugars. Be extra diligent with FG readings before bottling.
