If I know in advance that I'll miss a regular nap time, I'll either try to get 2x20min naps instead or a night of monophasic sleep. If taking the monophasic option, I'll add a cycle to the usual daily total (1.5+4 hours biphasic, or 7.5 hours monophasic).
For a nap that's missed unexpectedly, a 20 minute nap (as well as the usual longer variety) the following day usually seems to be enough to get back on track.
