Default [Dixonary] OT: British and US English question

"If I had been late I would have missed the bus."

That is normal British English to me. I've come across a number of American writers who say the same
thing as:

"If I would have been late I would have missed the bus."

Is that correct American English?

Best wishes,
Tim Bourne.
