In[1]:=
Exp[Log[3363+2378*Sqrt[2]]/10]-Exp[-
                Log[3363+2378*Sqrt[2]]/10]//PowerExpand//FullSimplify

Out[1]=
2

So, the original poster's expectation for ArcSinh[1]-Log[3363+2378*Sqrt[2]]/10 to simplify to zero is not unreasonable. I assume the reason FullSimplify did not reduce this expression to zero is there aren't rules built in to relate ArcSinh to expressions with Log.
