Well.. the maximum recommended dose for ibuprofen is 1200mg.
OD's aren't _too_ dangerous, usually limiting themselves to stomach upset and nosebleeds.
In massive overdoses (greater than100mg/kg of body weight), it whacks your blood potassium levels, causing arrhythmia and possible cardiac arrest.
Massive OD's also toast your kidneys to a delicate crunch. {grin}
