Most directions on the label say 24-48 hours. Done it sooner but it does cure and harden better with longer drying time.

For non-pressurized plumbing (drain) I would wait just a couple minutes to let it dry. For pressurized plumbing (return pump, closed loop, etc.) I would give it a good few hours (24hrs is ideal).
