Default Munich Malt in an IPA? what will this produce?

This is my third batch of beer and I wanted to try an IPA. I found a extract recipe from my homebrew shop. It called for 9lbs of pale malt extract. I grabbed a 6lbs tub and a 3lbs tub. But when I started brewing I noticed the 6lbs tub was the correct pale malt but I grabbed the wrong 3lbs tub, it was munich malt intead of the pale malt. I went a head with the recipe as written. Also my orginial gravity was higher than expected at 1.071 instead of 1.067.
How do you think the taste will change being 1/3 munich and 2/3 pale malt?

I add Munich to a lot of my IPA's, it should give it a nice malty flavor.

First off, it will be fine. It may be a bit darker but it will still be very good. Different but good. Don't worry a bit, it'll be fine~

Munich is a maltier base grain so it's not going to ruin the IPA by any means.

My last IPA has both Munich and melanoidin in it, but I haven't had a chance to try the finished product yet.

About 25% of the grain bill for my American Brown is light Munich. Yum!
