I accidentally upgraded. Is it possible to downgrade from 5.1 to 5.0.1? Is yes, then how? Thanks.

If Apple is no longer signing iOS 5.0.1 for your device, but you have iOS 5.0.1 SHSH blobs saved for the device, and if it's an A4 device, you can use redsn0w to make a stitched IPSW and then restore to that IPSW.

For the next day or so, yeah, just hold option (shift on windows) and click restore in iTunes, and point to the 5.0.1 ipsw.
