So I woke up really early... Had a couple homebrews whilst getting ready to Brew.. Started my 3 gallons boiling and added hops and LME.. went to watch TV after the hot break.. with the brew at a nice rolling boil waiting for the next hop drop..... So fast forward 4 hours... the Wife shut off the boil about an hour earlier there was a gallon of wort left.... I topped it off to 3 gallons started it boiling again and treated it as if it was 30 min point. Added hops, then added DME at 15 min and aroma hop at 5........

I'm thinking the excessive boil will result in a much darker than planned brew (based on the carmelizing LME) It will have higher than expected IBU since the nugget hops boiled for about 3 hrs....
Will the Carmelizing offset the extra bitterness?

What do you guys think will be the effect on the final product? I am a hop head so bitter is not a big deal.

I think you've got it: darker, a little sweeter, 10-15% higher IBU. May need some dry hopping.
