I entered a 1098 for a rental property in deductions and credits. I'm later asked about this information again in "Income from Rentals". Am I double dipping?

Yes, you don't want to do that.

Please return to the Deductions and Credits section and delete the mortgage interest (and real estate tax, if included) from the Form 1098 for your rental property. You only want to include in that section the mortgage on your primary residence and other owner-occupied properties. 

The Form 1098 for your rental property should only be included in the Rental Property section.

I too have same question but we rented only for last 4 months in 2017. Still do I have to enter entire Mortgage Interest of year in Rental Property section?

You only enter the portion that is attributable to personal use...

Thank you. So I have to enter 4months mortgage interest in Rental Property section and 8 months mortgage interest in Federal Deduction > Form 1098 section right?

yes, but be sure that the program isn't set when you entered in rental section to report the portion for you personally, It's a question in the rental interview.  Make sure to confirm it's only in there 1x. The same with the mortgage interest expense.
