How many hours before an international flight should you be at Manila International Airport Terminal 3?

At least 3 hours. 

Check-in time takes 35 minutes. Lines are longer at web check-in counters than at the regular check-in counters. But its still better to check in online already before arriving at the airport because it gives you both the option of checking in at the web check-in counters or at the regular counter.

Going through immigration takes 40 min.

That's 75 min lost already. You can use the other 75 min to take a leisurely walk to the gate and take a quick snack before boarding happens 30 min before the flight.

NOTE: You might need more time if you haven't paid the travel tax online yet and have to line up at the airport to pay or if you want to dine leisurely at the lounge.
