Question N code = premium economy?

I am a newbie so please be gentle with me. I used Google flights to search for premium economy fare from IAD to BKK in September. The flights I wanted shows as premium economy in the Google Flights but when I clicked to book through united web site it says that the second leg from NRT to BKK is "Economy (N)." Is N on ANA premium economy or regular Y? Should I just go ahead and book through united web site?

Booking class N in ANA is premium economy, but only earns 70% of flight miles (when crediting to ANA).
In June, NRT-BKK NH807(operated by N) is operated by 3 class (C,PE,E) configrartion, NH805(operated by NQ) has 2 classes (CY).
In September, NH807 (operated by NQ) is 3 classes, NH805(operated by NH) has 2 classes.
(NQ: Air Japan).

I don't know which is better to book in United or ANA web sites.

N class also doesn't allow any upgrade with points or miles

This is what it shows on united.com. I am paying out of pocket and only care about premier qualifying miles on United as I occasionally travel. Should we care about the award miles? I looks terrible in the picture below. I will be traveling with my wife and 3 y/o son. We just want to sit in bigger seats. The outgoing flight is the last wednesday of August.

United website is wrong. My itinerary booked as UA Flt # (op by NH) to NRT in R, NH Flt # to BKK in N on United 016 stock shows up as Economy for the N segment on United website, but as proper PE on the NH website. I'm also able to select PE seats on the NH website.

FWIW, NH N earns 100% on UA.

FWIW I booked PE IAH-NRT-BKK on NH 205 stock and the e-ticket shows N(Y) class as well... but looking at my trip on the ANA website it does say Premium Economy.
