Would I get better/easier results by sanding 24 hours after painting then wait a few days to buff? I have no rush so waiting a few days is no buggy

Normally, yes. It depends a lot on the clear you are using and the temperatures it is curing under. Waiting to sand a few days after clearing is also a good idea with some clears. I would rather wait too long than not long enough.

To add one item to Tex's answer also depends on number of coats also.
More coats take longer to dry of course.
