Yes. It's a pain but this should work. Remember /boot can't be lvm nor
encrypted, nor for the time being ext4. When you do the actual install
You can ask for a customized layout. That will show your existing block devices
and file systems. You get asked to provide a key for existing encrypted
block devices and you should be able to install to them. (If this doesn't
work it's a bug.)
