Encrypting can take an extremely long time and depends on a number of factors (disk speed, processing, etc). I've seen it 8+ hours to encrypt even a modest harddrive. Typically if I'm going to encrypt something (especially during an installation) I'll just kick off the install and go to bed ;)

But to answer your question: no, that's pretty typical in my experience, good luck!
