Default oops forgot to top up the primary!

so me and my friend were brewing an extract IPA and when it came time to strain it into primary, we filled it with quite a bit of water and then dumped the wert in. But we were in a bit of a hurry to go out so we forgot to top it up to the 5 gallon mark. maybe there was only like 4.2 gallons in there.
Its just gonna end up being stronger right?
any other possible effects?

we've all ended up with less than hoped-for. it'll be a little stronger, maybe a little hoppier, but still almost the exact same beer

right on dudes. brew calculator says 7.2% ABV, so not unreasonable by any means.
happy brewing.
