The War Magic feature of the Eldritch Knight states (PHB p. 75):

when you use your action to cast a cantrip [or at level 18+ a spell], you can make one weapon attack as a bonus action.

I'm quite confused: if I take that bonus action will the extra attack apply to it?

Extra attacks can only be made as part of the Attack action. If you are taking an attack granted by something else, extra attacks do not apply.
