It’s been many years since I’ve had to worry about Polar Alignment (thankfully), but I do know that Stellarium software gives the hour angle for Polaris as well as RA/Dec for J2000.0 and for the current date/time for your location.  If you have Stellarium simply click on Polaris.  If you don’t have it, then it’s free to download and isn’t a bad bit of software to have!  There are other ways to get this information, but this seems to be a simple method to me.
