This is an intro biology question, really somewhat off topic for
a neuroscience news group.

But, anyway, a person with blood type AB will carry one 'IA' allele
and one 'IB' allele.  A person with blood type A will carry one 'IA'
allele and either a second 'IA' allele or a 'i' allele.

In the first case, the children will be either A or AB. In the second
case the children will be either A or B.

If you don't understand that, then you had better review the notion
of a monohybrid cross, of genotype and phenotype!
