Wanting to check whether a block type has been created in a section

Hello, 

I'm building an ingredients page that has the alphabet at the top as tabs and the content for each letter underneath.

I've set up block types to manage this, ie:

 

<div id="tabs">
<ul>
<li><a href="#A">A</a></li>
<li><a href="#B">B</a></li>
<li><a href="#C">C</a></li>
</ul>

<div id="A">
{% for block in section.blocks %}
    {% if block.type == 'A' %}
    {% include 'ingredientItem' %}
    {% endif %}
    {% endfor %}
</div>
<div id="B">
{% for block in section.blocks %}
    {% if block.type == 'A' %}
    {% include 'ingredientItem' %}
    {% endif %}
    {% endfor %}
</div>
<div id="C">
{% for block in section.blocks %}
    {% if block.type == 'A' %}
    {% include 'ingredientItem' %}
    {% endif %}
    {% endfor %}
</div>
</div>

 

What I would like to do is to check if there has been a block type created and only apply my link to the letter in the list if that block type exists.

eg:

<div id="tabs">
<ul>
<li>{% if block.type == A%}<a href="#A">A</a>{% else %}<span class="inactive">A</span>{% endif %}</li>
</ul>

<div id="A">
{% for block in section.blocks %}
    {% if block.type == 'A' %}
    {% include 'ingredientItem' %}
    {% endif %}
    {% endfor %}
</div>

</div>

But obviously, what I have here doesn't work. I was looking for some help as to how to check for a block type's existence.

Thanks for any help you can provide.
