Sometimes manufacturers list different development times for different contrast index. You can develop HP5+ and Tri-X to look 100% identical. This is the primary reason why you should stop using monobath and switch to developer+fixer routine.

I disagree strongly with the idea that you can make TriX and HP5 look identical. Part of the look of films is grain structure, and they're inherently different. Also, if you're happy with the look of monobath then you shouldn't stop using it just because someone on the internet tells you to.
