I recently completed my PMP application (and passed the exam). I did not put hours in for every process group for every project. In addition, my comments on the projects were usually limited to around 100-150 character descriptions (enough information to describe my work in each process group). I think the general rule of thumb is to be as descriptive as necessary to describe your work in the project. That is to say, if it was a "quick hit"/short project you can summarize your work pretty quickly. If the project was longer/more in-depth then you should include more information.
