For those with ILF experience, how much weight do you usually add by turning the bolts one turn tighter?

There's no constant. It varies depending upon how far the bolt is In, and it varies depending upon where you are in the weight range on that particular limb.

I have a set lightweight limbs that seem to hit a point where they don't get heavier

Approx one pound, maybe a bit less.

It's more a matter of percentages.

The rule of thumb is, you have about 10% of adjustment with ILF limbs. So...say you have a 50# at mid-range (5 #'a of adjustment--47.5 to 52.5#'s) bow, you'll have about 5 turns of adjustment, which equals about 1# per turn.

Lighter limbs will be less per turn and heavier will be more per turn.

What Jim said. Depends on the draw weight of the limbs.
