Not yet. Inflation is still just one theory to explain some cosmological features, and there is no evidence for it (yet- see gravitational waves and experiments investigating polarisation of the CMB).

You can calculate the minimum amount of inflation required by an inflation theory to give us the current flat universe, and I think that's about 60 e-foldings if I remember correctly (so a factor of e^60).
