Day + Hours does not compute

I have a WF when a user clicks on complete it generates a new task for the next day with a due date of tomorrow.  When I do the Due date calculation I take the existing due date which is today and I also add hours to the date calculation by doing a list lookup to a field called hours which is part of the task input.  I then use this date result for a pause action in the new task.

 

This works fine if the user completes the task around the due time.  Thus if the expected due date is Feb 8th 2017 at 4 PM then the calculation results in a Pause Action until Feb 9th 2017 at 4 PM.  The problem seems to be if the user finishes the task early in the morning such as 8 AM then the date result is Feb 9th 2017 at 8 AM.  How do I get date calculation to be consistent at 5 PM.
