Is a 1hr 3min layover at ORD (Chicago) enough when coming in international?

So I’m flying in from Ottawa, in Canada, and I have a 1 hour 3 minute “layover” between flights. Is this enough time? I booked through Expedia and it’s both with United Airlines and I believe it’ll be on one ticket because it’s the same itinerary. I am not checking luggage, and as of tonight (flight is tomorrow morning), the gate I arrive at is F17 and I depart from F5. These are on the same terminal, but will I have enough time? I know the travel distance between the gates isn’t bad at all as they’re in the same big hallway, but I’m worried about customs/immigration time since I’m coming in from international.

I’ve never flown before and I’m worried about how long that would take. I heard that they give you customs forms to fill out on the plane, but I don’t know if that would speed things up much. My plane is small (only 50 people) so I also don’t think getting off the plane should take too long, but I do need to wait around for my carry on to be given back to me because it’s “gate-checked” because it’s a United Express flight and the overhead probably won’t be able to fit it.

I apologize if this is just me being paranoid, but I want to make sure.
