It also depends on the weight of your cat. The cans of food I have say 5.5 oz per 6 lbs, and twice as much for kittens.
But I agree with Susan - they recommend way more than the cat actually needs.
My kittens are 7 months old, and we feed them a combination of wet and dry...they actually eat roughly the same amount as your kitten (1/2 can wet, 1/2 cup dry) more or less...For awhile we were feeding them a whole can of wet per day with just a dry snack, but that was getting REALLY expensive, because we feed them premium canned food. Now we're trying 3/4 of a can a day, with about 1/4 cup of dry...ish. Spencer usually wants more than that (he's 2 lbs heavier than Lily), though Lily is fine with it.

and Lily, always in our hearts
