Unfortunately, the time it will take to cross the border is the "great unknown" that noone can predict - there is no normal. We've always found crossing as early in the day as possible has been best for us.
If you allow lots of time but get lucky and have very little wait you might consider spending some time in White Rock - not much out of your way. Watch for the signs when you enter Canada. Drive through White Rock until you get to the bottom of the hill. There's a nice walkway along the water as well as restaurants & small stores.
