Hi, how do I set good start bombing as the allies? I only seem to hit only a few targets. I'm bombing a few cities during the daytime for a single day and during nighttime during a single day. Is this too conservative? I've set the number of raids to 10.

While you are waiting for more expert advice then honestly the best way to learn is to set up automatic AI directives, observe them, then slowly make a few tweaks to personalise them and take more control. You can see what makes a positive or negative change. You can use recon or play both sides of the Bombing scenario to observe the results. Getting slow up to 10vps per week seems a reasonable target and you can do this with a couple of day and couple of night directives bombing 3 days a week I think. Don't just hit the same places each week though but keep the boxes relatively modest.

Yeah HarryBanana did a great job with that guide, seems the trick is more smaller strikes and aim for HI, Fuel and Oil with big bombs.

Obviously in a full campaign don't forget the U-boat (in 43) and V-weapons (in 44)
