You could turn and tack the landing carpet to the lip.Just make sure you cut the underlay back to allow for the turn in the carpet to sit flush.

Yes, turning and tacking. Cut underlay one inch short and carpet one inch long, then fold over carpet and tack it down using electric stapler or carpet tacks
