My own feeling about it is that everyone's different (YMMV), and if you
KNOW you're going to drop further, you'd be a fool to risk a hypo! :s

Docs are strong on the hypothetical knowledge base, but only YOU are an
expert on your own body!

My experience is that the Humalog peaks in 2 hours, yes, but it still
has a significant "tail" up to 4 hours. So I use 4 hours out as my
correction point.
