Recorded IP of Android smartphone.
Installed but did not run Psiphon SSH+ tunnel on smartphone.
Used smartphone to wirelessly tether laptop to smartphone.  
Recorded IP of Windows laptop.
Installed but did not run Psiphon SSH+ tunnel on laptop.
Ran SSH+ tunnel on smartphone, noticed a different IP displayed on it.
Noticed laptop IP did not change at that time.
Ran SSH+ tunnel on laptop, noticed a different IP displayed on it.

Is the laptop IP supposed to work independently of the smartphone
tethering? I'm not sure why I had to install a separate SSH+ tunnel on
the laptop to get SSH+ benefits.

What is SSH+? I'm not entirely clear what is to be gained by SSHing into  
your phone, if you're right near it [ie, you have control over both  
endpoints and the ability to ensure that the link between them is secure  
anyway - what does tunnelling it all inside SSH get you?]. In other words,  
what are you trying to do?

I need to use encrypted traffic to prevent ISP browser sniffing.

SSH+ is a more secured variant of SSH tunneling. SSH encrypts traffic
like VPN except it usually only encrypts HTTP/HTTPS/SOCKS traffic. SSH
tunneling is often much faster than VPN.

OK I've reread your OP, and it's a bit clearer now. For some reason I  
thought you were just SSHing to your phone from your laptop.
