dimmer switch

I have recently finished the electrical portion of my basement remodel. My question is regarding a dimmer switch that I have operation 6 recessed can lights. I had the lights on for a while the other day while I was working, and when I went to shut the lights off, the dimmer was very warm. Is this normal for a dimmer switch to get hot while the lights are on?

Very warm, yes. Hot, no.

What is the total wattage of the six bulbs?
