That’s what we do in the Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM) for One- and Two-Family Dwellings (which is referenced in the IRC). See WFCM Table 2.5B, footnote 4.

Subject: Hip Roofs and Parallel to Ridge
We're having something of an in-house debate:
From a logical stance, a hip roof does not present the abrupt change in dir=
ection that a gable loaded parallel to wind does; and is, rather, more of t=
he 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 w=
ind direction, would be appropriate for a hip roof. But nothing in the cod=
e or commentary appears to substantiate this thought process (that we can f=
ind at least).
What say you?
