I would double check the oil level, drain some if necessary and go run it. Check the oil again after 20 hours and see if it is high again. Don't be afraid to go run it hard, it is actually good to run these engines hard every trip out to keep them broken in.
A few things might have happened
1. all of the oil may not have drained out from the 20 hour service
2. it could have been over propped
3. you might have babied it to much during break in and not seated the rings/valves enough
