We’re having something of an in-house debate:
From a logical stance, a hip roof does not present the abrupt change in direction that a gable loaded parallel to wind does; and is, rather, more of the same flow pattern as one would see in a perpendicular to ridge loading. For this reason it would seem that perpendicular to ridge, regardless of wind direction, would be appropriate for a hip roof. But nothing in the code or commentary appears to substantiate this thought process (that we can find at least).
What say you?
