The allies got the tesseract because Peggy went into action immediately instead of being paraded around for months on a USO tour. Peggy didn’t become a national sensation by giving chase to the Hydra spy, and she wasn’t an American so she wouldn’t have drummed up as much funding anyway.
So Peggy goes into action earlier, which allows them to find the Tesseract much earlier. It’s understandable to miss that since the What If’s go at a frantic pace to cover a lot of ground, but I watched the episode again with some friends and it makes sense.

Spoiler warning for episode:
Agreed, this was the weakest episode by far. Like the creative team said, the entire story was written backwards and it showed. It wasn’t "what if we changed this, what would happen?" It was "we want to do these things and we will contrive to make it so." This episode felt like a "who would win" internet thread made into an animated feature.
To me, the jokes fell flat, the tone was all over the place, dialogue was hamfisted (e.g. Black Widow screaming "It’s about Hope" instead of just saying "It’s Hank Pym/Ant-Man"), the plot felt forced, and you could see the "villain reveal" coming a mile away. I was wondering if it was Ant-Man or Yellowjacket, but I didn’t understand what the motive was… and then the motive was fridging Hope offscreen in an unexplained change to the timeline.
I loved the previous two episodes, and I’m hopeful for the next one. This one was a dud for me, but that’s part of the classic What If experience anyway.
