Is 11.5 Quarts Of Oil OK?

I looked at my manual and it states about 10.5 quarts. I changed the oil last night and the dealer forgot to give me the two crush washers so I let it sit all night to drain until I could get the washers this morning.

I added 1/2 of quart of oil to the filter before I installed it and then added 10 quarts. I let it warm up but the needle never moved off of the red so I added another 1/2 of quart to make it 10.5 but the needle still didn't move.

I ended up adding a total of 11 quarts and then went for a short drive to see the needle move up to 3/4 of the way to full. Got back and checked the oil to find its still about 1/2 low. Is it normal to take 1 full quart more then the manual suggest?
