I became a resident in the US September 10, 2017 can I file a 2017 tax return

Yes.  You are eligible to file a 2017 tax return since you resided in the United States at least 31 days.

As a legal U.S. resident, you’re subject to the same tax rules as U.S. citizens. This means that you must report all income you earn on annual tax returns, regardless of which country in which you earn it. When you prepare your return, you can always use Form 1040, or if eligible, the 1040A or 1040EZ.
