I agree that spraying water in an engine compartment for any reason is not a good idea. Even for cleaning purposes. ...
Anything under your hood should be able to take gentle water pressure, except the spark plug wells.
Those need to be blown out, but everything else should be fine, unless you only drive when it's dry.
I use a foaming cleaner under the hood and it looks great after rinsing; I've never had problems starting, after blowing out the SP wells.
