can you check ... that would have been an undeclared act of war (and the US gets upset about Pearl Harbour)


That depends on who shot the first shot.

OK,

" A few minutes after the declaration of war on the United States, 7 December 1941,

A P-38 (E) shot down a Fw 200 C4 off the coast of Iceland." You are correct that the

German government did not declare war on the US (officially) until 11 December 1941,

but the US WAS now officially at war...don't tread on us. :)
