I've recently done this to NEX-3N, and to my surprise it was a more complex and treacherous disassembly than that of either a6000 or A7R.
After trying a bunch of filters, I think I kind of dig the B&W in ~900+nm infrared and the mix of visible and infrared from the pedestrian R25A filter.
Gives just enough spectrum range to play with color with reasonable tonal range.
As for the widely recommended Hoya R72, I found it to be perfectly boring: not quite as contrasty as 900+nm IR filters, too narrow band for color photos.
Stacking a bunch of stuff to get Aerochrome-like colours was bit underwhelming: once you get there, the results are a bit over the top.
Haven't tried to get blue-white IR look yet, something to play with in the future.
