iMovie does not import 60P. If your camera has a 30P setting, use that. If not, use the 60i setting.
If slow motion is really important to you, you may want to consider Final Cut Pro X, which can import and edit 60P.

I should add one more thing.
I think your request is a reasonable one. It would be nice if iMovie would support 60P since more and more cameras have this feature. You can click iMovie/Provide Feedback and tell Apple that you would like this feature added.
If I had to guess why iMovie has not added support for 60P in iMovie, it would that they would need to make it easy for the average consumer to understand how they can import 60P but output (Share) only 30P.

Thank you AppleMan. I'll use 60i for now and eventually get FCPRO X. I just provided iMovie feedback about the 60p feature.
