No injuries were reported.
There was no claim of responsibility for the attack.
The same base was targeted by three drone attacks on Wednesday, without causing any casualties.
Over the past months, military bases housing US forces in Iraq have been targeted with missile attacks and Washington has often accused armed factions loyal to Iran of being responsible.
Currently, there are around 3,000 troops, including 2,500 US forces, fighting in the anti-Daesh/ISIS coalition.
