after reading this and recalling your partitioning scheme I would suggest to
encrypt as it is much easier to loose the usb drive or get it stolen.

in this case you need 2 partitions (assuming sda is your drive)

sda1 for boot (512MB)
sda2 for rest

sda2 cryptsetup with luks then create logical volumes for your root, home,
swap and so on. 

Most newer computers manufactured 2010+ have CPU that supports AES, which is
making luks transperent
