Android 4.0.4 is API Level 15.

API 17 is going to be a release above 4.1.1. If you have two different Android versions, the higher version will have an API level greater than or equal to the lower version. API Levels tend to be equal when there are few minor, if any, API changes or improvements, or if a version is expected to be phased out very quickly, as was the case with Android 4.0, 4.0.1, and 4.0.2.

Even if your device had some weird unsupported API Level, for example pre-production devices, you should be able to target any lower API Level and have the software work perfectly. You might be missing some new APIs in those instances, but it should otherwise work perfectly.
