1www.rejseplanen.dk gives you: departure 7:48 on ICL 11 to Aalborg, bus 7009 to Hjørring and train 80 to Hirtshals "main" station (not the one in the harbour) - walk to docks. Hirtshals is TINY so finding the ferry is no problem.
The price I find is DKK 235 + 30 for a seat reservation on first train if you want. Not a bad price at all - remember distance, you are buying tickets from 3 different companies - and the route has little traffic/few passengers -not at all like Copenhagen - Aarhus.
Basically there are no "alternative" (bus) routes runing parallel to trains - waste of ressources. You would be able to make your way with many local busses - it would take for ever and probably cost more.
1½ hour before is PLENTY - (actually will be 2:15 with the route above)
You are aware that you will be on that ferry for 20 hours!!!!!!!

2Yeah that option is the best one I could find as well, so I took it, thanks!
Yeah, the 20 hour ferry should be entertaining in some small way, I haven't been on the open ocean in years. I imagine 20 hours plus sleeping time won't be as bad as a bus ride can be, you know, a 20 hr bus ride is a nightmare. I'd be surprised if this ferry ride turned into a nightmare.

Well depends on how late into the autums you get - from late Septenber heavy winbds/a storm is a risk and the North Sea is tehn a very unpleasant place.
Else you are only stuck with nothing to do, costly food, and a place where everybody tries to get as much money from you as possible. (But that's just negative me - if I had to travel from Jylland to Norway I would anytime fly or take a short ferry to Göteborg or Norway and then train.
