To reach rank 30 it will roughly take 2 - 2.5 playthoughs depending on whether you do the VR challenges or not. I was rank 17 at the end of my Easy run (with challenges done).
I also used a guide to collect all 'Morph Eyes' which can be found here:

This will help you with the following achievement at the same time.

Note that finding these Morph Eyes are entirely optional but they do reward you with exp and give you one minor upgrade if you find them all in each zone. Not to be confused with the collectible upgrades though for this achievement:

However, if you want to get it done in one playthrough, I have just discovered a neat trick to do so. Basically, all xp accumulates over all playthroughs (assuming you're playing New Game+ that is) and also if you die. So you could kill some enemies and constantly reload checkpoint at any point in the game but here's the best spot I think:

On the Earth colony stage (it's just after avoiding the red lasers that rise from below with the movable platforms) you will encounter three Cyborgs. Each one drops a 'statue'. You need these to place on a pedestal of sorts which activates a lift directly below. Place them on the lift and when you reach the bottom you will be rewarded 3,000xp. As soon as you see your experience grow, don't walk forward or it will autosave. Instead, just reload last checkpoint and you will start off above with the three cyborgs again. Now just rinse and repeat.

Another good grinding spot is at the end of the same level aforementioned.
To finish the mission you need to enter the teleport. This will reward you with 5,000xp instead.
Be quick about reloading though as it auto-saves quite fast. This might actually be faster than
the other method but now you have a choice.
