Easy way to solve it - Give yourself enough time to get a s-l-o-w- fill and leave the tank on the fill station to cool while filling.

BTW, what was your tank pressure when you wanted to get it "topped off." How much additional bottom time would you get with the additional air?

I personally would not want my HP Steel tank overfilled, so it could cool off to it's working pressure. It's not safe, it's bad for the tank, and it's not legal to overfill beyond the working pressure.
