I'm wanting to list templates in a drop-down that target the incident class and have certain properties included in the template.
I've done both of these but the only way I've found to check the class of the mpot is to check the typeid to see if it matches my type projection Id or use GetType() and check something under that.
I was wondering what the preferred method of doing this was? There must be a better way than what I'm using...

I settled for this, but it looks a little long-winded to me:
foreach (ManagementPackObjectTemplateProperty mpotp in ilistmpotp)
if (mpotp.Path.IndexOf("/Impact$") != -1) bImpact = true;
if (mpotp.Path.IndexOf("/Urgency$") != -1) bUrgency = true;
if (mpotp.Path.IndexOf("System.WorkItem.Incident") != -1) bIncident = true;
if (mpotp.Path.IndexOf("System.Notification.Template") != -1) bTemplate = false;
if (bImpact && bUrgency && bIncident && bTemplate)
bList = true;

This does it:
ManagementPackTypeProjection mptpType = null;
mptpType = emg.EntityTypes.GetTypeProjection(mpot.TypeID.Id);
if (mptpType.TargetType == mpcIncident) bIsIncident = true;
