Default Oil in the air box

I have an 2003 GT Cruiser and today I put in a K&N drop in filter in it and I noticed a small amout of motor oil inside on the bottom of the air box. The car only has 1200 miles on it and oil level is okay. Is this normal? Has anyone else encountered this? Any ideas what would cause this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. TIA

Wow thank you very much for the quick responses. What a great site. . If this is a normal process, how much oil will accumulate? Should this be cleaned out on a regular basis? Since this is my first turbo vehicle, I guess that oil blow by is part of the way this engine works...

I usually clean the oil out of my stock airbox every 3000-5000 miles, usually following an oil change. Since I began using Mobil 1 5W-30 I change my oil every 5000 miles/6months.
