        WHEN (DATEPART(HOUR, DateTime) < 11) OR
             (DATEPART(HOUR, DateTime) = 11 AND DATEPART(MINUTE, DateTime) < 15)
         THEN (cast(cast(datediff(minute, DateTime , '2013-08-26 15:30:00.000' )as decimal(30,4)) / 60 as decimal(30,2)) - .5)/ Qty
         ELSE

  WHEN x THEN y
  WHEN a THEN b   -- Just keep adding when..then blocks, and not else if within a case
  END
