I guess this is sort of an attack of opertunity, rather than a standalone plan.
Lets imagine a US response to japanese sinking of hawaii fleet, building 3 TTs, and a possible sealion. In this scenario, I would guess UK goes 8inf and US has two main objectives:
1., prevent sealion by flying bombers and fighters.
2. keep hawaii.
To keep hawaii, you have enough fighters to make the J2 attack not work, especially with anzak help. You still have the resources to prevent sealion at the same time (those eastern fighters wont reach hawaii anyways). So, since you have the resources to prevent hawaii falling on J2, you have to think about J3, To prevent J3, you would probably build something like 1 fighter and 7 subs on the west coast. At this point, japan is in a race for hawaii he wont win, while he proably isn’t doing what he should elsewhere.
