    I don't think that's an Inner Glow. It looks like they took a font similar to below, with inner shapes (or they created the inner shapes), then they filled the base letters with one color, and the inner shapes with a linear gradient.

    I never use inner glow, not enough contorl, use feather instead.

     

    Once you get used to appearance stacks you can create most anything. Roughly

    Expand Appearence on the offset path creates a path independent of the original, bits of which you can then just delete, like your unwanted lower bit.
