You can't do anything. Reducing the opacity of Layer Style strokes simply works as you've described. There's no way to alter the behavior of an inner stroke with reduced opacity.

To solve the issue, consider using a duplicate layer with the fill opacity set to 0, then apply a layer style inner stroke and reduce it's opacity on the duplicate layer.
