My BP goes up to about 135-150/70 immediately after exercise then drops to 118/65 shortly after. Heart rate drops to 50. Is this normal?

In brief: Can be normal

A modest rise in blood pressure is a normal response to exercise (a rise of about 5%) an exaggerated jump in blood pressure (15%) can be an indication for an increase future risk cardiovascular problems such as carotid artery blockage studies warn.
Your response looks normal.
