I just made a 60 min clone and did 60, 50, 40, 35, 30, 25, 20, 15, 5 minute additions. I think the closer to continuous you do the closer to the original you'll get. Mine's still in the primary so I don't know what results I'll get with my schedule. I tried getting the same IBUs as they get with the same hops just not as continuous. I did 3 ounces hops with the bittering hops done in 4 (1/4oz) additions, the flavor done in 3(1/3oz) additions, and the aroma done in 2(1/5oz) additions + 3x.75oz dry hop additions.
