How long does an iPad update take?

I have my iPad air connected to my PC computer and a message tells me that "iTunes is downloading a software update for this iPad and will install it when the download is complete." I have now been waiting for about two hours, with nothing apparently happening. How long should I hang on - in hope? The current version is given as iOS 8.1.3 so presumably the awaited update will be to iOS 9.

Maybe it is stuck on the update. There were problems with it when it first came out.

Rough guess it probably should not take more than 30 minutes to install it.1Hour at the most.

Thanks folks for your help! The Update did eventually complete, and things look OK. But I'll take note of your advice for the future. Thanks again.
