No the Oil Light will not come while you are draining the oil to the correct level.
Just don't have the car running or it will and you will have a Big Mess to clean up.
Just spin off the filter and drain the contents, put in back on and check your oil level.
You may end up putting some fresh oil back in of course it depends on how much "to high" is. Good Luck and Remember.
