Your lemon tree will go through a natural thinning process on its own without any intervention on your part. I foresee many of those lemons dropping on their own accord. As your tree matures it will be able to hold onto more fruit on its branches in the future.

As the tree blooms you can take off as many blooms as needed to keep the branches from breaking as the lemons mature. I have had to do this with a peach tree.
