isn't it ironic that antonio usurps prospero's throne, but then Prospero lands on the island and steals it from Caliban?

yes. that would be the definition of irony, and it is a problem that Shakespeare hints at throughout the play. The real problem is that Prospero is too self-centered to realize the parallism between his plight and Caliban's.
