you could instruct your mail client to move deleted emails to 
Gmail/Trash and leave the "real deletion" to Gmail.

OfflineIMAP will synchronize, so the messages you want to delete will be 
uploaded to Gmail/Trash. This automagically removes every label from 
these emails, and with standard settings, Gmail will delete them after 
30-or-so days.
