Please see my comment to the question which explains the second integral. Although I am sure you have the right reason for it being wrong. Why did you get divided by $2R$ instead of $4R$ which is what I got?

@NowIGetToLearnWhatAHeadIs In the second integral I am integrating along a circle. The circle passes through the point $P$ and the current passes through its center. You can think of the circle has going around the middle of the semicircle. Since everything is symmetric, I expected the magnetic flux to be constant along this circle.
