Taking your DE time and adding 10 minutes seems about right.

14 minutes for a my usual straight shave. This time includes: Stropping and building lather from soap. WTG and XTG passes with a straight, plus a quick ATG clean up pass with a DE. Dry the straight razor and strop it a few times.
This method gives me consistently closer and more comfortable shaves than I was getting with a DE alone.
I can do an ATG pass with the straight, but only when I have the time to go slowly and concentrate. This is reserved for mornings when time is not a factor.
