For this year, deduct the amount of the first installment you paid from the amount you paid in June. Apply the excess June installment against what you will owe in September (at the same amount as April installment). Pay the same amount next January

This sounds like a good plan. That's what I'm going to do, and in the future I'll make sure I make equal estimated payments. Of course, if the first quarter is the high-income quarter for the year, it means being locked into three more equal (over)payments and then waiting for a refund. Still better than a penalty.
