Here from outside.I've had to deal with a drip edge that wasn't angled properly alowing water to wick under and down the siding. To eliminate the problem we added a piece of coil stock bent to form a more distinctive drip edge giving the water no option except to fall off the edge. Waiting for more pictures.
You're right. Good point. Other areas around the house the soffit is angled slightly down. This doesn't appear to be.Can't really tell (but thanks for the picture) but looks like the soffit getting wet is flush with the fascia board. Normally the fascia extends below forcing any water to drip off.
If it is flush there are options with roll stock trim or even 3/4" pvc material to add the desired extra drop.
So the soffit ideally should be slightly further up ( recessed) and not flush if I'm not mistaken?\
is this a new problem or has it always been like this.
Yours look like #1 and normally they look like #2 where the water will run down the rake and fall off.
That would be the normal, but that doesn't mean that is the only problem.So the soffit ideally should be slightly further up ( recessed) and not flush if I'm not mistaken?

Something like this right up so it can be caulked at the top or tucked behind that board.With your front soffit and interior porch ceiling following the angle of the rake it is not a common design, thus I'm not finding examples to show you.
The two options I see are bending some trim material or a piece of ¾" vinyl to extend the bottom of that fascia (rake) an inch or so. Caulk or silicone and a few galvanized finish nails would secure it. Very easy job from where I'm sitting.
A siding or roofing contractor could fix you up in 30 minutes, but what they would charge can vary a lot.
Maybe Neal can draw up something and offer more suggestions?
