wrf_user_ll_to_ij function

I have a 2D field X from WRF with coordinates lat2d and lon2d. I want to
calculate the sum of subset of X within lat/lon bounds of (min_lat,
max_lat) and (min_lon, max_lon). I tried two different ways, which I
expected the same results but they turn out to be different. Which is the
correct way?

method 1:
X=where(lat2d.lt.min_lat .or. lat2d.gt.max_lat .or. \
              lon2d.lt.min_lon.or.lon2d.gt.max_lon, 0, X)
(in fact, the original X is missing value outside the lat/lon bounds, I use
the where function just for precaution).

method 2:
subsetX=X(loc(1,0):loc(1,1) , loc(0,0):loc(0,1))

The sum_X from method 2 is a lot smaller than method 1. Is it because
wrf_user_ll_to_ij loses some grids at the bounds?
