150DE on a Icecap 175w MH Ballast

If it will fire it will be fine. It would be slightly overdriven, but most magnetic ballasts overdrive bulbs a little bit, so having the 150 watt bulb overdriven by ~10% wouldn't be too bad. I'd guess that your bulb wouldn't last as long, but we're talking about it lasting 6-7 months instead of 7-8 or something like that.

Thank you for your help. I just wanted to make sure that it would work.

I can't say if it will fire it up or not, but if it fires I wouldn't worry about it.

 

Good luck!
