The Calorie Counter app I downloaded onto my iPad measures intake as Calories and energy burned as kcal. So, if the calorie counter says that the total calories burned is 2451 kcal is it the same as 2451 Calories burned?

In terms of nutrition (food Calories), 1 Calorie = 1 Kcal = 1000 calories. So assuming your iPad app is correct in reporting 2451 kcal, then yes, you burned 2451 Calories.
