When two waves (having the same wavelength) are inphase and interfere in a constructive interference why just the amplitude of the final wave doubles and not the wavelength??

Wikipedia has the answer to this: Wave propagation

When the two waves overlap, the net displacement at a particular point is the sum of the displacements of the individual waves.

The net displacement in this article represents the amplitude in your question.
