so whats the difference and/or benefit of using one over the other?

Per the documentation, hidden participates in the automatic scale range calculation, whereas ignore does not.
Chart Studies: Subgraphs Tab >> Draw Style

Could someone please elaborate on a specific use case on when you would use Ignore draw style

Armed with the knowledge of the above, it should be clear why ignore would be the correct choice in any number of cases.

If you want a specific demonstration:
1. Add color bar based on alert condition to your chart and define an alert condition
2. Set the chart and study to automatic scale range
3. Set sum of alerts to ignore rather than hidden

Ignore is necessary when study output values vary (versus each other) by orders of magnitude.

The relative volume study would be another perfect example.
