The result, courtesy of goals from Ricrado Vaz Te and Matt Jarvis, lifted West Ham to seventh - their highest position in four years - but the manager felt his side could have made matters easier for themselves.
"We showed two sides of our team," he told Sky Sports.
"The one side was the great first half we gave and completely dominated the opposition on their own ground.
"We are a newly promoted team and we have taken the game to QPR and led through two quality finishes. Let's face it it could have been more than 2-0 at half-time.
"Adel Taarabt's brilliant strike to make it 2-1 was a worry for us because it lifted the crowd and their players.
"We had to show the other side of our character which is good honest hard work and defending. After they had a man sent off, we should really have seen the game off with more goals."
