You can't go with what other people say as to the amount of time taken to get a print right. Every negative is different, every issue of what you're looking for in the print is different. I've gotten completed prints in 20 min, (not counting wash time) some over several hours. You choose the amount of work you want to put in to the print and go from there. If you are constrained by a budget, then just work harder on an individual print, study the negative or contact sheet then go from there. Good luck and good printing.
