Are you using tap jump? Short hopping is infinitely easier with the X and Y buttons.

I don't typically have issues with it even with tap jump, all I can say is just make sure you just tap up to jump, not tap and hold. Basically reset the control stick as soon as possible. (Although TBH depending on how much you play, you could just wait until Smash Ultimate comes out, it should make short hop attacks easier).

As soon as Smash 4 dropped, I abandoned tap jump and opted to use X instead. If you wanna keep using tap jump though, just practice how much you flick the stick to short hop and get it into your muscle memory.

And yeah, like MarioManTAW MarioManTAW said, in Ultimate you'll be able to do it much easier anyway.
