Honey works very well for this purpose. It is 100% fermentable, but it takes a tad longer.

You can use table sugar at boiling with no problems don't add too much

A lb of table sugar works fine. I used 8 oz brown and 8 oz table sugar in my DIPA, came out great!

Yes, table sugar is fine. It can be broken down into glucose and fermented just like corn sugar. The only difference is the table sugar requires an enzymatic process that corn sugar doesn't.
