I made this today. I agree it needs more sugar. I mixed the cream cheese when it was just softened enough to mix with the sugar, lemon and I added one 1 tsp vanilla. I tasted as I went and added extra sugar to taste. I also added a little sugar to the heavy whipping cream and whipped it in my stand mixer. I chilled the bowl and whipping attachment so they were nice and cold when I whipped it. Also, make sure to use real whipping cream, not half and half. And shake the cream good before you start whipping it. Then, don't stir the whipping cream in with the cream cheese mixture but fold it in. My cheesecake was firm enough to serve right away without allowing any set up time. Of course, the longer it sets the better the flavor.
