How are you making the Aliens come down the screen? Make the bullet work the same way, only in the opposite direction (up).

While moving bullets/aliens, you can check for a collision to determine a "hit".

What code do you have to far? Are you keeping a separate array of the screen? Even just tracking the current location of objects allows you to check for collisions.
