Is the "lip" you mention just the end of the pipe extending through the flange? The installer may have been sloppy at chipping off the end of the pipe after joining the flange.

As long as the flange is solid and the top of the flange is approximately level with the finish floor, the gasket should work fine. The gaskets that have an integrated rubber or poly "funnel" that sticks down into the flange opening are easier to get right the first time.

Stick soda straws over the ends of the flange bolts before you lower the toilet onto them...makes it a lot easier to align the bowl and protects the threads.
