I'm only a month late on this :), you can set the start and end time on hbase export to take an incremental, you'd just set the starttime (must be in epoch time in milliseconds)  The HBase book is quite helpful, here is the relevant section.

bin/hbase org.apache.hadoop.hbase.mapreduce.Export <tablename> <outputdir> [<versions> [<starttime> [<endtime>]]]
