Don't overthink. You do not draw untill your AP is close, say 60 - 80 miles away. If you have an intercept of 11 D. then just eyeball the azimuth and come up with a new AP. Say the azimuth was 300 degrees true then the new AP would be ABOUT 10 degrees west and ABOUT 2 degrees north. Use this new point as your new AP. Usually, on the third AP the intercept will be normal ( less than 60 NM ) so, then, draw your intercept.
