Default Irish Draught

I made my 3rd batch ever yesterday, an Irish Draught (boy that honey sure makes everything sicky!) and the OG was 1.040 (@ 70 degrees), the target was 1.045. Could I have added more/less water (it would be less, right?? stupid math) to get closer to the 1.045. Is .005 that big of a difference? Is there a way to make up the difference now by adding more sugar/honey/yeast?
Thanks

.005 is nothing to worry about. Time to RDWHAHB.
