Cancel that. It was a P-38 Lightning.

Sorry, but both are wrong.
In fact the P-38 never saw operational service with the RAF

No, both these types weren't built in America.

OK, I have two more ideas. The first is the P-40. (If you had asked for the first RAF manned US built plane that shot down a Japanese fighter, I'd have been sure.) The second is a bit more of a longshot. Was it a bomber? A B-17, perchance?

Dean.

P-51?
P-39??
B-17???
B-24????
more shots in the dark????????

Like? I am not very sure. Maybe they had copied the Japanese design?

No, it wasn't a night fighter either.


clue,
It was the only American built aircraft to see combat with the RAF during the Battle of Britain, though the actual kill happened before the battle.

A Lockheed Hudson Mk I of 224 Squadron RAF, Coastal Command, on the 10th October 1939, shot down a Dornier Do 17D near Jutland.
