That's actually a matter of legal distinction.  If you agree that secession was and is the right of the individual states, and thus they are sovereign entities, then the US wasn't attacked.  Rather, they were tresspassing.  However, if you believe that secession was illegal, then yes, PTG Beauregard did launch an attack on the US.  It all hinges on secession an it's legal merits.
