B787 family weight question

I was thinking of trying to take off above MTOW in IF. Maybe it would work. I’ll try it in solo.

As long as your weight isn’t red, you should be fine.

The IF numbers for MTOW and OEW are basically the same as IRL. IF actually uses a lower passenger weight estimate at around 76 kg (FAA gives 80-90 kg including carry-on). Most likely either you are carrying too much cargo, or the fuel burn estimate is inaccurate.
An example: the B738 fuel estimate is 2486 kg/h. However, the only time you get a fuel burn this high in IF is at MTOW. (the 738 in IF burns like 20% less fuel than IRL though)
