You would just halve the extract as well. This is where DME is preferable to LME, because you can easily store any extra.

Or you could go with all the pilsner LME, none of the amber, and then add specialty grains to compensate. For a pale ale, you might just add 4-6 ounces of Crystal 60 for a half batch.
