Default 3x3: too many sets?

My question is simple. Am I spending too much time working out?

I am currently doing a 3x3 program, I am in the first phase on the third week, and I have increased the number of sets I am doing each week. My workout is now taking me about 1 1/2 hours. I want to increase my sets again for week four. I think that will put me at 2 hours. Is that too much time in the gym?

I read that I should keep my workouts under one hour. I am at 7 sets of 5 for squat and deadlift and I am at 8 sets of 6 for bench. I just want to hit 8 total sets for each lift.
