Can I wire transfer money from the my NRO account in India to my checking account in the USA?

Yes you can. However there is some paperwork you need to follow. As per FEMA [Foreign Exchange Management Act], any transfer by individuals outside of India need the 15CA & 15CB form. The 15CB is from a CA to state that taxes have been paid on the funds being transferred. The limit is 1 million USD per year. Read more at Liberalized Remittance Scheme and here.

Assuming you were already declaring the funds held in Banks outside of US in your regular IRS filings, there is no other formality.
