I suspect you mean GFIC breaker. The dryer will not cause the breaker to fail.

Can you use a 20 amp circuit breaker for an electric dryer?

If you are referring to a cloths dryer, the answer depends on the requirements of the dryer. Most dryers require AWG#10 wire with a 30 amp fuse. If the wiring is AWG#12 then use a 20 amp breaker but never use it on AWG#10 which requires a 30 amp breaker. If you are referring to a hair dryer then yes a 20 amp breaker is fine.

Is 50 amps to much power for a 30 amp dryer?

I'm guessing you have a 50 amp breaker in the panel that the dryer is connected to? The rating of the breaker is how much it can pull before it trips. Your 30 amp dryer should never draw enough to make it trip. Should the dryer have a dead short, it will still cause the breaker to trip. You can change out the breaker if you really want to, but there really isn't any reason to.+
