1 1/2" away from what wall?

your question doesn't make a lot of sense as it is written. I can see where a wrong end angle could cause the problem or a too long countertop could cause the same thing. You don't say which wall and where on that wall.

if you can post a pic, it would help a lot.

countertop is ok on one side of L-wall, other wall is not square. When I match up countertop at 90 degree angle it comes away from wall by an inch and a half. wondering what angle I need to cut this corner to to bring countertop back to wall

Fold a large sheet of paper to fit the corner----then fold the paper in half---that is the miter angle.

If you have room to slide the top so the side you do not have to cut can be put against the wall, you simply do that and slide the top until it touches the other wall. Then you scribe your cut onto the counter top.

just be sure the top is long enough to be able to cut this off and still cover the full length of the counter base.
