I am not 100% sure but based on my experience it might take 10-30 mins for one sequence.

USEARCH is "orders of magnitude faster than BLAST", so you might consider using that instead.

In a benchmark with 1,000 queries against a 15 Gb FASTA file containing 38.5 M proteins, USEARCH achieved a similar result to BLAST and finished in 9 minutes instead of 4.5 hours.
