I'm freaking out a little bit right now, and I'll tell you why. This is my second batch and first that isn't from a kit and I'm not sure this will all come together and become beer. I'll take you through my process and all of my ingredients.

I steeped the grains at around 160 for 30 mins.
Began a boil.
1 oz Simcoe @ 60
3 lbs Light DME @ 50
1 lb other DME@ 50
1 oz Centennial @ 45
3 lbs Light DME@ 30
1 lb other DME@ 30
1 oz Simcoe @ 15
1/2 oz Centennial @ 10
1/2 oz Simcoe @ 5
1 lb Honey @ 5
1/2 oz Centennial @ 1

Forgot that little tablet that is supposed to be a substitute for Irish Moss. Put in just after boil

Post-boil
1/2 oz Simcoe, 1 oz Centennial @ 60 min

Dry Hop
1 oz Simcoe 21 days
1 oz Centennial 21 days
1 lb Honey
WLP001

Will it be beer?!?! Do I need to add/do anything? I know the biggest thing the guy at the home brew shop said is to not worry, 99% of the time it will all work out.
Also, I was supposed to get 8oz of Turbinado, but I don't think I got it(unless he put it with the grains) What will happen if I don't use this?

Thank you for any and all help.

I would skip the pound of honey @ dryhop....
Even skip the honey in the boil also, but that's me...I use corn sugar to dry out my beers and bump up the abv...
If you want the honey taste, I would use a little amount of honey malt, and a little goes a long ways...

Well, the honey is in there, there's no changing that. Also, I have a bunch of gunk from the hops, do I just filter that out later?

considering the fact that you have malt, hops and yeast listed, and assuming that you will add water, from what I understand water+malt+hops+yeast=beer. I would say your going to have yourself some beer.

It will be beer. It just may not be the beer you intended.
Busy recipe for a new brewer, and there is no need for staggered additions of malt extract. Better to add the majority very late in the boil to increase hop utilization in the boil. Next time.
Turbinado and honey won't do much for you in this recipe, and you can use plain table/cane sugar to dry out a beer heavy on extract. Also, dry hopping for 21 days is probably excessive, 7-10 days is just fine.
Read up on the forum on the typical mistakes to avoid like bottling too early and such and it will turn out fine.
