Yes, although if you plan to use scp, I'd question whether you need to encrypt the files with gpg first. It certainly won't hurt to have a second layer of encryption, but if all you're trying to do is prevent third-party interception, ssh itself is pretty secure. -- Work: It's not just a job, it's an indenture.
