For what it's worth, I watched the movie again last night, and it's very possible to explain more time passed between going to Earth and Kronos than was shown on screen. There are cuts where some more time could've easily passed between the events being shown.
I think Scott saying he'd only been off the ship one day kind of kills any argument about the travel time being anymore than a day or two tops.

And of course, there's this old chestnut: The ship travels at the speed of the plot. It's as patented a Trek writer's move as having the transporter broken or unable to be used at the most inopportune moments just to heighten the drama.
Starships have moved at the speed of plot since 1966. Why should Abrams change that now?
