The best way to find out is to experiment. No single method of timing is "best". If you are in a hurry then cooking for a set time and doing a running water release will cook your rice in the shortest time. If you don't mind prolonging cooking time then you can turn off the burner earlier and then let the pc release on it's own. Also, as each different size pressure cooker takes longer to heat up, cooking times will be longer for larger pressure cookers. For consistency, I simply start timing from the moment that I close the lid of a pc.

Also, a great tool for timing pressure cooking is a multiple digital timer. I have a triple timer made by Polder. It is great because I can set one, two or three timers. For cooking rice I set one timer for 25-30 minutes and another for 30-35 minutes, depending on which pc I use. The shorter time is to signal when to turn off the burner for a natural release while the second is for when the rice is done after a natural release. Have fun.
