So when I look at Lulus cover image template it shows them trimming on three sides and not the binding side. This is just for the cover right? Because they will need to trim all four sides for the interior pages so that the front and back of a double sided page would be aligned correct? This would mean for a bleed I would give an extra .125" to each side making the 8.75" x 11.25" that they are requesting.

The following help article gives instructions for formatting your document for full bleed:
You will want your page size to be .25 in larger in both width and height than the book size, and keep important art and text .25 in from the edge of the finished page, allowing for trim variance of .125 in.
There is a chart that lists the dimensions for page size with bleed that you might find useful.
