If pulling a triple shot should it be 3oz a double 2oz and a single 1oz?

Exactamundo.

And the desired extraction time remains the same for all three.

Yes, you are right. But extraction time is the same when you pull them.

It's better to work with brew ratio. Amount of espresso in volume is dependent on crema and not a good measure. Better to keep a brew ratio of around 50% which means 20gr of ground beans will give 40gr of espresso.

Brew ratio = (grams of ground coffee / grams of esprersso) * 100. For espresso 50% is commonly used.
