If you add the hops now you'll end up with some kind of goofed up IPA or maybe a **********

It is definitely not ruined. I would drink it as is and keep the ounce for a future brew day. In my experience mistakes often lead to great beer.

You could dry hop with the extra ounce. That would give a nice aroma to the beer and add a bit of taste but it would not be as intended. You won't get any bitterness from a dry hop though the 1.5 oz of fuggles wasn't giving much anyway.

Yes, I mentioned it somewhere above, I failed to change the volume from my standard 6 gallons to 5 gallons.

I used local wildflower honey from a farmer's market. Having said that, I also boiled it for 60 min per the instructions...I wanted to make it like they do as a baseline and adjust from there. When you're boiling it for 60 min, I don't think it really matters what kind of honey you use.

I got some honey sourced from DC hives, one in the Georgetown neighborhood and another in Shaw (if you don't know DC, they're both a mile to a mile and a half from the White House as the crow- or bee- flies, maybe less). Perks of living 5 minutes from DC I guess. Haven't done the porter yet, but the Shaw honey went into the Honey Ale.

I just tried my 12oz WH Honey Ale. This is my first home brew. Wow, wasn't ready for the flavor, I so new that really don't know all the lingo yet, but I think it is pretty hoppy. Anyway I am pretty stoked. I am going to put a few sixers in the fridge and share with my co_workers. IPA up next for me, just gotta get the family over this bug so I can have some me time in the ktichen

Nice job! Is that a frosted mug you're using?
