Bermuda hybrid brown
First reaction is even 2" seems awfully tall to cut bermuda. Mine looked most spectacular with the gardener using a heavy reel mower and giving it a buzz cut at least once a week.
Where are you? You might update your profile. I would be guessing at your dormant season without the information.
I had a bermuda front lawn in Northern California that was gorgeous with lots of care but did turn brown and go dormant starting late September through February or early March as I remember.
During the growing season I sought to give it 1 pound of nitrogen per 1,000sf per month---fast acting not time released fertilizer. Some months it got straight nitrogen.
So in your case with 16-4-8 (Nitrogen is the first number of the NPK ratio always you know?) 16 percent of the package is available nitrogen. Or 16 pounds out of 100 pound sack put another way. You could feed 2,000sf of lawn 8 times.
I suspect if you applied at half the recommended rate you certainly did no harm but I would put the rest on now, especially if it is fast acting and not time released. If you are in a climate like N California, now is about your last chance for the season though. You just waste money feeding it during the dormant season.
Fall was generally a good time for maintenance things like dethatching and I am thinking if yours was allowed to grow tall its thatch layer may have gone a little crazy too?
