I brewed a Rye Ipa yesterday according to the recipe it should have an original specific gravity around 1.066 but ended up with 1.052. I think I might have added a little too much cool water to the wort after cooling it down. I also used a 2L yeast starter and only decanted like 1/3 of it before pitching. How will this affect the beer?

I don't think it affect it much at all. You took a hit in efficiency but if the yeast are healthy they will multiply and prosper.
