Is there any way better than flush the instance buffer, per-instance data, and recreate them? I haven't tried this brute force approach yet, so I don't know how much fps it'll reduce.

You may refill the dynamic vertex buffer / dynamic constant buffer / buffer object when ever you'll need to change the per instance data.

You may even use a single dynamic buffer to pass instancing data. You may keep the data in system RAM and stream it to the buffers when drawing.

Cheers!
