Ilford recommend 7:30 for 400 asa in stock ID11. If your rating it at 250 then it's more or less a case of pulling by 1 stop. Kodak's recommendation is for -1 minute per stop. I guess 6 to 6:30 would be a good starting point.
I've quit a lot of experience for this combo.
Did some calibrations.
Rated as 250, and depending off course your method, your lightmeter, your objectif and your camera
(first minute every 10 sec and then every 30" in a small tank)
a good starting point is 7' to 7' 30" by 20°C in ID 1+1!
Printed on Ilford MG IV Warmtone will give you fine results.

Dear Morten, Dear Sean,
Kodak is talking about 9' 3/4 small tank and 11' large tank. For D76, at 400 ISO
Here with a modern 50mm 1.8 lens, in 400 ml solution (200ml ID+200ml H2O), with the film pre-soaked, in a Paterson tank, every 30" the calibration gave good results with 7'30"" to 8' minutes, off course film rated at 250.
I can give you to-morrow the density figures, if you want.
I'm looking forward for your further findings.
