大変っちゃ大変なんですけど

I came across this phrase but I cannot guess its meaning. In this case is っちゃ an abbreviation for っては ?

I can't recall seeing this specifically, but I believe your supposition to be spot on.

As far as the usage, you seem to be correct.
I wonder if it's an even shorter form of
ってゆっちゃ

大変ってゆっちゃ大変なんですけど
