As everyone is saying, in April in Amsterdam, don't worry about the lack of air conditioning; worry about how cold you will feel. If you want warmth in April, try Spain, not the Netherlands.
Ceidleh's weather and clothing story is similar to mine. I brought one rather heavy cotton sweater - and ended up wearing it every single day of my 10 day Netherlands trip, whether it matched my clothes or not. This was in addition to my jacket with liner, scarf, and sometimes gloves. However, I had also brought a cashmere sweater, and found it unwearable, as it was too hot.
"Maritime climate" is a euphemism for 1000% humidity, so no matter what the actual temperature, you will FREEZE without lots of layers. However, since it really isn't that cold in April (it only feels that way), you can't wear a wool sweater, or you'll roast. The thermometer will say 50 F or thereabouts, but it will feel much colder.
I know San Francisco has some similar issues with humidity affecting how one has to dress, but I found Amsterdam to have them far more intensely. My payoff from my packing mishap on that trip was that on my September 2016 trip to Scotland and northern England, I knew exactly what to bring (one light cotton sweater that matched all my shirts, and no wool or cashmere), and it worked perfectly.
