I'm not sure about the terminology so I'll just give examples.
In 19th century, if you wanted to go to Japan, you had to sail.
Today, if you want to go to Japan, you have to take a plane.
For the last 60 years, if you (???) to Japan, you have had to take a plane.
What would you put instead of the placeholder? "if you have wanted to go to Japan" doesn't sound right. Is this kind of a conditional possible at all?
