It would only be the second raise. 3bet +1 would be 3 times the blind plus one additional blind for each limper, right?
I think whatever you're reading has their words wrong, which would explain the confusion.
It should say '3 big blinds +1 for each limper', not '3bet +1 for each limper', you are correct that a raise after only limpers is not a 3bet.
