ITA with boongirl. It's normal behaviour. She could be trying on roles of "bad", exploring her ability to do things she knows she shouldn't, etc. I, too, would try to turn it around into playtime. Or, I would say "wow, you seem angry" if I thought it was related to that - like you have just said she can't have something.
As boongirl said, the more you focus on the hitting, the more she will do it. Don't react too much, other than maybe a gentle reminder "I don't like being hit" or "it's not okay to hit" then move on to a suggestion for play.
