I starred an email in Gmail. I now can't seem to find it in Google Inbox.
Obviously I can search for it, but I would have thought that it might be easier to find than that.
Am I missing something?

Inbox by Gmail and the Gmail web app present different user experience paradigms, but you can still interact easily between the two. It is obvious that the Gmail team doesn't want you to have problems switching back and forth.
From Inbox, find your starred messages by adding
in:starred to your search. Here is me searching for a starred message from Joshua.
From Gmail, find your pinned messages by adding
label:pinned to your search. Here is me searching for a coupon from the On The Border restaurant that I had pinned:
Inbox by Gmail (IbG) and Gmail itself are two different web applications. They have access to the same mailbox, some features are the same, some are similar and there are several that are unique to each of them.
Star is one of the features that have a similar feature in Inbox: Pin a message.
You can't find starred messages in IbG, and can't find pinned messages in Gmail.
