I just had that happened to me the other day. Wasn't too bad because the giants helped with one of the dragons, then between me and Lydia, there other went down without too much trouble. I only died twice :)

Yeah they can spawn more than one dragon at once at random, you know without the main quest, etc. So watch yourself! I wonder if you end up fighting even more than that...? Like would there ever come a point where the game might spawn 3 or more. The horror.
same thing happened to me after i completed a side quest where some thugs were preventing a town from using the mine there. fast traveled out of the area to sell loot, realized i forgot to turn in. went back, turned in to hear the roar, and see the two dragons spawn...
one of the townsfolk died in the battle... i wish i had a res button... he was the quest giver. thankfully i did get the turn in though.

It was crazy! It was in winterhold after the town was attacked so there were dead bodies everywhere. I had just improved and enchanted a BEAST elven bow I called Lethality. 12 points of absorb health per shot, with 61 shots before out of charge.
I planted it and 30 elven arrows on a dead body and dual casted a Reanimate Flesh spell. My zombie minion took full aggro and was able to tank thanks to the replenishing health from each shot of the bow. Thanks to all the perks I have in necromancy he was around for forever and was really buff. He practically killed of one the dragons alone!
I put on the amulet of akatosh, my custom made 25% magicka regen ring and my apprentice robes of destruction and sniped the other dragon down with lightning bolts.
They both crashed down next to each other. I sprinted in between them, and channeling a fire cloaking explosion scroll. Slow channel... and BOOM two simultaneous dead dragons for the finish.
The most epic fight I've ever had, period.
