    I have yet to do it - correct
    I have yet to do it means I have not done it yet, or I still have to do it.

    "I have already done it" is certainly a valid sentence, but it means the opposite of "I have yet to do it".

    We use already in statements about the past. Example:
    Jack has already done it. (Perhaps the task was accomplished sooner than antcipated.)
    We use yet in statements about the future. Example:
    I haven't done it yet. (I expect to do it, but at this moment I have not, in fact, done it.)
