The Optimization Inbox gives an approximate number of recommendations that the account may have. The recommendations are updated at regular intervals, but not in real time. It can take up to 7-8 days to update depending on how often you run the optimization.
When you click into the optimization you will see the actual number of suggestions because they are based on real time data which is why the two numbers may be different. The suggestions in the Optimization Inbox get updated once you use the optimization and apply the changes, or if you archive the recommendations in the optimization.
Accounts for which optimizations are run more often get updated faster in the Optimization Inbox, so the more often you run the optimizations, the faster the inbox will be updated.
