Air filters can be a hot topic for some as they feel they know better than everyone else. Generally speaking I advise replacing it as your described it. Some like to try and clean it. I remember caterpillar telling me once that I can use no more than 30 psi for filter maintenance on some of the earth moving equipment mostly Donaldson type filters though. Plus they got dirty much, much faster than personal trucks etc.
Personally, if the filter is yellow you could gently tap the bottom and vacuums out the air box, reset the filter mind and see how it goes, then if it goes right back to yellow replace, if it stays green for a while check it in a few months. That's just my thoughts and usual process. I have a couple of personal gas vehicles that get a new filter every 15-20k miles just because they are very cheap and at 230k plus miles haven't had any damage. My diesels I do take a little more care though.
