I'm an American living in Amman.

Yes, the Allenby bridge isn't a problem. If you want to travel to Syria, Lebanon, etc, you can request that they not stamp your passport. Be prepared that they'll give you some trouble about it. Also, when you leave to go back to Jordan by the Allenby bridge, you'll have to pay around 140 NIS (about $40) just for the exit fee.

If all you want to see is Jericho, you may want to hire a taxi from the bridge to take you there. Or, you can take a shared minivan and head to Jerusalem and from there go to Jericho (which is backtracking, but Jerusalem shouldn't be missed).
Allenby bridge, if you have a visa multi intrance befor you com to Jordan will be much easer to crose both ways.
