HE shells explode on impact. AP shells penetrate, THEN explode.

 

You'll generally want to use AP shells, switching to HE when you can't penetrate or are overpenetrating.

HE shells will have a better chance of setting ships on fire which can be annoying if they have just used their damage control crew.

AP shells will have a better chance to penetrate and do damage to internals. For example I hit a 3/4 health Fuso with AP shells and hit an ammo bunker and destroyed the ship completely.
