In the answer key they say that the reduction half reaction involves two electrons transferred and therefore n would be equal to 2. However, shouldn't the reaction only be involving 1 electron transfer since it is going from In3+ to In2+ which would also make lnK=4.67 and K=107?

Yeah, it's a typo. In "Corrections to Solutions Manual" it's corrected to 1 electron. The final answer's K approximately equal to 100.
