Why is Cobb's father waiting for Cobb outside Immigration in LA? He won't be sure whether Cobb will succeed; he rejected the idea of "Inception" in the first place when Cobb told him about it in the campus?

Miles is not Cobb's father, but Mal's. He acted as an intermediary between Cobb and his children, bringing them gifts from his father.

Hence, he might have been visiting his grandchildren in the U.S., being able to welcome Cobb at the airport, hoping the inception would have worked and that his son-in-law would have been able to pass through immigration.

Or perhaps because 'reality' is actually a dream.

Cobb took a leap of faith by trusting Saito, and he could have seen that he was deeply bound by honour at heart when he showed how dissapointed he was that their former team member had sold them out, offering Cobb a chance to kill him. From seeing he was honourable, he could have chosen to call his father in advance to meet him there, but to be on the safe side, didn't ask for his children to come as well since he showed he still had the niggling doubt that Saito would honour the arrangement.
