Half overlay hinges

Half overlay hinges

Hellos, 

We have always only used full overlay hinges on our cabinetry. What we have done in the past is put a piece on the inside of the cabinet where a half overlay would otherwise go. We did this to maintain the KISS technique. 
I am trying to implement half overlay and my people are saying that the attached picture is the way it needs to be done: offsetting the heights of the hinges so that the perforations don't coincide. 
Is this how it is generally done? 
Thanks for suggestions. 

Ben
