This question is up for debate just like the question of whether George W. Bush knew about 9/11 before it happened. Conspiracy theorists would answer yes, but there is no real evidence to support it. A good history professor I once had said that Roosevelt could not possibly know the attack plan, but knew the Japanese would retaliate somehow because of the trade embargo. Knowing exactly how was a suprise, the president couldn't possibly know ahead of time.

Did the US know Pearl Harbor was going to be attacked?

No of course not. However the Americans did find out that Japan was going to attack them, but they didn't know when and where. They found this out by cracking the Japanese code, that was being sent through. Japan wanted the attack on Pearl Harbor to be a surprise, so the US would not be prepared to defend themselves. This is why the U.S. lost many men, planes and ships when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. Bottom line, the U.S. had no idea that Japan was going to attack Pearl Harbor.
