Personally, I would always go on the smaller side when it comes to draft fans, and here is why:
When you are using a forced draft system, there are basically two modes: Fan on, and Fan off
During the 'fan off' times, your fire is bascially suffocating, smoldering and making "dirty smoke". When the fan is on, the fire tends to run clean. By choosing a smaller fan, you are increasing the percentage of the time the fan is on, therefore creating a better overall environment for the food you are cooking.
I'm waiting for the day that one of the forced draft companies come out with a variable speed fan that runs constantly, just alters speeds to control temp.
Just my 0.02...
