Although I feel I've had "insights" and other dhamma experiences, they seem so subtle and weak I can't be sure I haven't just imagined them based on what I've learned intellectually.

Subtle is a good indication your heading in the right direction, but subtle also means one must sharpen their concentration to see it clearly. It's all suffering DNONS even the subtlest reality is suffering. Even ones experience of Bhanga will change as they progress on the path, initially it may be very intense and exciting. But as one progresses this experience will become subtler and subtler. Our concentration must strengthen and our morality must become purer, also the continuity of ones practice should increase.

Just observe this moment from moment to moment as it presents itself, meditation is not about reaching any particular state.
