Approximately how long does it take to get to and dock with the ISS?

As a general rule if you watch the ISS overhead (look at Heavens-Above

You will see a point of light preceeding the ISS in the same orbit* for a few hours, maybe days before docking and a few hours/days after undocking.

* Not really, it's in a slower and higher orbit before docking and a faster and lower orbit when leaving, but you can't tell that with the naked eye.
