Default Replacing Upper Coolant Hose

Hey all,
Just looking for some advice. My cooling fan somehow manages to slice my coolant hose on my 2002 WRX. I think the coolant hose got pulled out a little bit when installing the turbo inlet... Anyways, I bought the new hose, now I need to install it. The obvious is that I need to undo the clamps on the hose, pull it out and install it, however, this will create an air bubble in the coolant system. I also bought a jug of coolant from Subaru. My question is, what do I need to do to top off the coolant system.

Just from watching other people... Im assuming have the car on a flat surface, open the top of the coolant resevour and top the system off, then start the car and as the level drops, add more coolant. keep doing this until the thermostate opens, and keep doing this...

my question is, how long do I need to run the car? and when do I know Im done?

Any help would definately be appreciated!
Thank you!
