Iím in the middle of brewing a 1.050ish estimated OG hefeweizen when I realize that Iíve dumped the entire 1 oz package of hallertau hops (4.3%AA) instead of the intended .8 oz

According to Beersmith the hefe will go from 11.6 IBU to 14.4 IBU.

Iím not an experienced enough brewer to know, will this create a significant change in flavor? Most importantly, will it be too bitter?

Worst part is I havenít even had any beer yet to blame my goof up on...

I love "too many" of any ingredient.

11.6 to 14.4? Doesnít sound significant, but I donít brew, so donít listen to me.

You are more than okay... if it is to hoppy for ya just let the hop fade a few weeks more.

According to the BJCP style guidelines, German hefeweizen should be between 8-15 IBUísÖ. donít worry, your golden!

I donít think I have ever measured hops in anything other than 0.5 oz increments. Why save 0.2 ounces? I would have just tossed it in the boil. Not many people could tell a difference in 3 ibu.

Many a happy accident started with this realization, I am thinking.

Thatís not really a big change and would not worry. It might add a little more hop flavor, but acute.
