Your colors will not be affected by running the blix for a longer time, and this is probably a good idea anyway when using the solution for several films. For E-6 your clear leader should be clear at the end of the blix.

I'd just double the time and not worry about it. You can't overdo it.

If you have lots of film to process you could also buy another kit and use some of the blix concentrates from kit 2 to mix up, say, 24 ozs total. This would require some math but would be pretty easy, but blix will spoil once mixed, unlike bleach (ok, bleach does eventually but much much slower) so I'd just give plenty of extra time and not worry about it.
