As discussed just about a week ago, the HSE version implemented in QE  
is HSE06:

For changing the screening parameter, there is an input parameter  
called 'screening_parameter' in system (default=0.106). For changing  
the fraction of the exact exchange, use 'exx_fraction' also in system  
(default=0.25). I guess these are not documented anywhere in the  
official distribution...
