      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, K.
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.05, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 3 folds, MP1 calls $0.15.

      MP1 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.47) 7 (2 players)

      I check the flop to induce some bluffs by QQ-. Overbet is weird but villain might be doing that with a lot of holdings so it's fine to call, right?

      I would raise a bit bigger against that shorty pre.
      To induce bluffs you have to be sure he wouldn't raise preflop hands like QQ/JJ/TT and he's willing to bet them on such a board. After such a shove he may show up Ax, but it can be FD or even 7x as well. There should be enough trash hands to justify Ax situations, so I think stacking off is fine.
      Just my humble opinion u know... :)

      I think it is fine against middlestack
      If you think you gain more checking back flop then your play is fine
      You can also b/f or b/c flop
