Default Glueing ebony fingerboard end to spruce top

Today I glued an ebony fingerboard end onto the spruce top with
a spot of white classic titebond about 1 to 1.5 square inch size.
As ebony does not absorb like softer woods Im not quite sure how long I should leave the clamp pressing it.
Would overnight do the job or is it better to leave it for about 24 hours...or even longer?
