I want to do BLAST search of some amino acid sequences. What should I go for BLASTP or smart BLAST?
SmartBLAST carries out searches against landmark databases as mentioned on the tool's home page.
If you want to search against those specific databases then you should use SmartBLAST, else use BLAST.

Thanks for the reply sej Modha. I have done BLAST with my sequence (58 aa). I am getting the following two best hits. Which one should I go for?
Max score Total score query cover E value Per. Identity
Fisrt hit 122 122 100% 6e-35 100.00%
Second hit 121 121 100% 9e-35 100.00%
The first hit is 69 aa long while the Second hit is 58 aa long.
That is a new question and completely unrelated to your original question which seems to have been resolved with my initial response.
Moreover, I cannot help you with choosing the best hit without any prior knowledge of what you are trying to achieve and what is the question you are trying to answer using BLAST as you have provided very little information here.
