Yes, Japanese aircraft dropped bombs on the US in World War II. The bombs fell on Unalaska, one of the islands of the Aleutian Island Chain. In addition, the Japanese did have very limited success with "balloon bombs" that they floated into the air. Of some 9,000 launched, a handful of these balloon bombs did make it to the West coast and did inflict limited damage, including 6 deaths. Links can be found below. Additionally, the Japanese aircraft carrier I-25 launched shells at the Northern Oregon Coast on the night of June 21, 1942. Although no one was injured, a baseball back stop at Fort Stevens was destroyed and a shell exploded in a residential area of Warrenton Oregon. There is a memorial, monument, and substitute American shell (donated by the US Navy) to this occurrence that can still be visited on DeLaura Beach Lane in Warrenton.

This question should be narrowed down to which war. In the War of 1812, the British burned down the White House, as well as every other standing structure; with the exception of the US Marine Corps Barracks...legend says that the British left those standing out the respect they had for the US Marine Corps. During WW2, Japanese Troops landed on, and occupied portions of the state of Alaska (although it was a US Territory at the time). Japanese Balloon Bombs floated across North America; a deeply classified military secret to keep people from panicking. Even today, the US doesn't want people to know "much" about those Balloon Bombs. Japanese Submarines shelled the City of Santa Barbara, California...that had to be "played down." Japanese Submarines launched an airplane which bombed Brookings, Oregon...that had to be "played down."
From the very beginning. IJN subs were prowling the US west coast and launched submarine airplanes which bombed Oregon, and fired shells from their deck guns into Santa Barbara California.
