Default Water drip + sizzling sound

When I park my car, I see water dripping near front of the car and it's making sizzling noise. Is that normal?

Condensate from the A/C drips onto exhaust pipes on the passenger side of the car.

NORMAL

Every car that has A/C does it. Perfectly normal.

Yep, but the main difference here is the condenser drain is not often located directly above the exhaust manifold. I think most folks are used to the puddle in the garage after AC has been running, but not the sizzling sound.
