Yep, no worries.

If I shoot 400H at box speed or even one stop over, my lab always tells me that the negs could have used a bit more exposure, so I basically treat 400H as a 100200 ISO film.

They do have a slightly different look, but I find that each has its place. I have a selection of both in my fridge and happily switch between them depending on the circumstances.

I guess I just have to experiment with it like you did. Next time I'll shoot it at 1600 and process normally.
Nothing wrong with a bit of experimentation, but the photographs of Portra pushed to 1600 on your website look pretty good to me.
