You have to be careful how you word that because that isn't really correct. You use E to solo in the key of E. Now, E major and F# Dorian contain the same notes, but they are completely different scales and sounds. They aren't interchangeable.

unless you play F# dorian over an e major chord, then itll sound like E ionian.

Uh, no. If it sounds like E ionian then it's E ionian. No argument here.

You may be playing in a position that starts on F# and contains Emajor's notes, but if you're resolving to an Emaj chord, it's E ionian, regardless. If you resolve to an F# over an F#m chord, then yes, you're playing F# dorian.
