I have been playing with the Amazon API and have become confused with
the number of results returned.

Even with the 'itemPage' parameter set to 1, I recieve over 30 results
on some query terms.

Is this because I am performing a blended search?

I'd recommend asking Amazon.  They're the experts on their API's.

I have spent some time playing with the Amazon API.  Without the
documentation at hand, though, this will be strictly from memory.

itemPage isn't a "number of records" to return, it's more of a
pagination parameter.  page 1 will send you, for example, results
1-10, page 2 will send you 11-20, and so on.

If I recall correctly, blended search is limited to 50 results total
(other types of search are unlimited), so you should get 50 results

I'm not sure how you're getting 30 results though (it's 30 from one
call, right? not multiple calls?).  In my experience each query would
give you 10 results at a time and you'd have to use itemPage to page
through the whole result set, 10 at a time.
