Actually, in my opinion, if you look at it in the general sense of the fact that they are both essentially hybrids ie Ness is half human and half vampire and Jacob is half human and half werewolf, that he does technically imprint on his own species, just a different variety.
As for Dovrebanen's question about how imprinting on a half vampire provides strength and survival to the pack, I do have a thougth on that. Shocking, I know. Anyway, I will preface my comments by saying I am a believer in evolution and evolutionary theory. But, the whole human element in the mix kind of brings it up to the idea of intelligent design. The wolves and the vampires are mortal enemies, until such time as mutual goal brings them together. But, each species is essentially the only threat to the other. Werewolves are the only creatures capable and designed to kill Vampires and vice versa. But, wouldn't a hybrid, a mix, of the two be stronger than either one individually? So, if imprinting is present to ensure the continuation of the strongest bloodline, to me, it makes complete sense that the true Alpha, the one with the strongest wolf blood, would imprint on the strongest being period who is a viable option. That would ensure not only the continuation of the wolf gene, but the strongest offspring possible.
And, yes, this post might be stretching it just this side of breaking, and also proof that I think about these things WAY too much.
But being hybreds as you put it, their is only a slim chance of ever having a child. Because of all the genes involved rather if Renesmee went with Nahuel being just like her it would be possible for them to have childern
