I got 2 impacted wisdom teeth removed under very light IV sedation and no laughing gas. I remember the whole procedure. Is this normal?

In brief: Conscious Sedation

Conscious IV sedation is a combination of medicines to help you relax.
In reality, you remain conscious during IV sedation. If not completely satisfied, it would cause you to desire the deep sedation next time.

In brief: Sedation Can Vary

IV sedation is an anesthetic technique that can vary from office to office.
Different medications and/or combinations of medications may be used, as well as different dosages. Your medical and social history can also have an effect on the level of sedation and amnesia achieved. Also, as you stated, you had a very light IV sedation as opposed to a deeper sedation where you would not remember.
