{
  "sunset": {
    "rule": "IF ((sunrisesetdevice.sunset == (currentdatetime.hour + (currentdatetime.minute / 100)) AND light.state IS off) AND currentdatetime.second == 0) THEN switch DEVICE light TO on",
    "active": 1
  },
  "sunrise": {
    "rule": "IF ((sunrisesetdevice.sunrise == (currentdatetime.hour + (currentdatetime.minute / 100)) AND light.state IS off) AND currentdatetime.second == 0) THEN switch DEVICE light TO on",
    "active": 1
  }
}

By using the DATE_FORMAT function

{
  "sunset": {
    "rule": "IF (sunrisesetdevice.sunset == DATE_FORMAT(currentdatetime, %H.%M)) AND light.state IS off AND currentdatetime.second == 0 THEN switch DEVICE light TO on",
    "active": 1
  },
  "sunrise": {
    "rule": "IF (sunrisesetdevice.sunrise == DATE_FORMAT(currentdatetime, %H.%M)) AND light.state IS off AND currentdatetime.second == 0 THEN switch DEVICE light TO on",
    "active": 1
  }
}

Or an hour before the sun sets:

{
  "sunset": {
    "rule": "IF (sunrisesetdevice.sunset == DATE_FORMAT(DATE_ADD(currentdatetime, +1 HOUR), \"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S\", %H.%M)) AND light.state IS off AND currentdatetime.second == 0 THEN switch DEVICE light TO on",
    "active": 1
  }
}
