The first leaves layer styles editable in After Effects. The second merges them into the footage so that they are not editable in After Effects.

The first option is when you still want to make adjustments to the layer — depending on the layer styles of course, but you may want that flexibility. 

 

The second option flattens the image so that it is just like importing a flat bitmap image. 

 

Most often I choose the fist option of retaining layer styles and then pre-compose the image if I want to treat it as though it were flat. That's the best thing to do if a photoshop file has layers that you want to edit or animate.
