Surely you really meant that you were expecting Log[ablah].
How about the following?:
In[2]:= Simplify[Integrate[1/a, {a, 1, ablah}], ablah > 0]
Out[2]= Log[ablah]
But I must say that I'm slightly surprised that (using version 6.0.2),
In[1]:= Integrate[1/a, {a, 1, ablah}, Assumptions -> ablah > 0]
Out[1]= If[ablah > 1, Log[ablah],
Integrate[1/a, {a, 1, ablah}, Assumptions -> 0 < ablah <= 1]]
did not give simply Log[ablah].
