Are you learning Latin with Wheelock's Latin 6th Edition? Here's where you can meet other learners using this textbook. Use this board to ask questions and post your work for feedback.
Wheelock does not make clear( at least to me) when to translate the imperfect as a simple past tense. In many of the answer keys he translates the imperfect as a past when I can't figure out why. There must be some grammar nuance that I am missing.

You are right about that. Your translation and insight into the passage comes with experience. I do not know when to translate it as "was/were ____" or simple past tense, but sometimes I use context clues to help me find the best answer.
Perhaps speaking to a Latin teacher or someone outside this forum w/more knowledge on the topic? (or Google it)
