I ordered a tenor Fibracell 3 from WWBW. It felt extremely soft.
What stiffness Fibracell premier should compare to a V16 3?

It should be about the same. I've played Fibracells for years. I love the fact I can pick up my horn with a dry reed and just start playing. Usually they are quite accurate (unlike most reed manufacturers), but on rare occasions, I'll find an inconsistent reed. Contact the manufacturer and find out if they will exchange it.

I'm alternating between Java Green and Fibracell Premier on tenor - and I find that I have to go up .5 from Java (3.0) to the Fibracell (3.5) for the same playing response.

Normally I used to play Rico Platicover 3.5 with my Berglarsen metal 105/2, but when i changed to Premiers I play a 4.5 size. It is the best match for me
