Every game I play as Akali I always do more physical damage than magical damage reguardless of going ap/hybrid build (although not by very much)

Would hybrid pen be better than a pure ap build?

Hybrid Pen is great on Akali, especially if you get a lich bane.

no, go pure AP pen, most of the physical damage you do is just last hitting creeps and autos. those are less important then the AP burst

keep in mind that most of that damage is from you last hitting, not from assassinating people.
So no, keep your magic pen, it's more helpful in fights against champs.

That physical damage is also coming from Lich Bane + Sheen procs.

I was thinking of getting them myself but they don't seem like they are worth the IP. If you got them already then test them out and see which you like better

Hybrid penetration is actually a little less than the penetration you get buying a full set of each and splitting them up. You also should put effort into the AD/AP passive activations more than penetration runes.

Shouldn't you get AD marks, and AP blues in order to proc both passives with no items? why would you use penetration runes?

The physical damage you are dealing is from her E which is AoE and hits minions and from her auto attack. Its not worth it given that your E is for farming and you auto champions for the expressed purpose of proc'ing your Q.
