Instead of counting frames, I'd suggest using

  (frame-parameter FRAME 'client)

where FRAME is the argument with which your after-make-frame-functions
hook was called.  If this returns non-nil, FRAME is a frame created by
serving a request from emacsclient.

If this still doesn't work, please show the code of entire hook and
the complete recipe you used to test it, maybe there's something else
at work here.
