Meson, I honestly don't know what I did to make it ask me for my password only once. I just let the installer (Anaconda I believe) take care of it. My knowledge of luks is very limited.
Here is my crypttab...

rm -rf *, looking at the cryptsetup man page I believe that --verify-passphrase simple asks for the passphrase twice when preforming commands on encrypted drives to ensure one has entered the correct passphrase. Thank you for your insight however.
