I do not think it matters. You could go at 10 am through the Justice Gate and see the Alcazaba first before going to the Nazari Palace, since both are adjacent. You can do the Alcazaba in less than an hour.

The entrance known as the Justice Gate is very good but note that it is a steepish climb from Plaza Nueva through the Gate of the Pomegranates then upwards keeping to the left path following the wall of the Alhambra. So allow at least 20 minutes from the Plaza. This would have been the original main entrance during the Moorish times.
