Why would God create a soul he knows will go to Hell?

He's omniscient.  He knows.

The term "omniscient" is too limited to describe what's going on.  God infallibly knows that each of us is going to choose either Heaven or Hell, and His complete knowledge includes the consequences of both choices.

What is yet to be chosen by each of is, indeed, very much yet to be chosen; even from God's point of view.

Otherwise -- that is to say, if God's omniscience worked according to the laws of the categories of logic -- then His omniscience would preclude the possibility of an authentic freedom in the creatures He made in His own image.  And that would imply that such creatures are not authentically free, and as such, cannot really love their Creator.

I find that problematic to say the least.
