Is it common to see a abnormality in a brain MRI and see something not abnormal in an angiogram?

In brief: Sort of
An MRI is very sensitive but not always as specific.
It picks up images that appear abnormal. They may require further studies to determine whether it is something of significance. An angiogram may find that what appeared to be a lesion on MRI was not as serious as first thought.
