Could be. Hybrid starts to pay off with high-poly scenes only, i won't use it for anything less than a few hundred thousand polys. In my experience Hybrid mode is best used with simple samplers (not MLT) on heavy scenes with moderately complex lightpaths (i.e. not too complex, but not just a couple of bounces too). Architectural exteriors visualization is the best application.
