You don't actually need to do it like <p class="classnotneeded">. Just do it like <p> and define p something like this...
Then you'll only need a <p class="noindent"> when you don't want the indent like at the first paragraph of a chapter or the first paragraph after a section break. And any other classes are when you don't want the default <p>.
