At present, is more used the Present subjunctive and the Imperfect subjunctive. The Future subjunctive is obsolete.

What is the difference between the present subjunctive and the imperfect subjunctive since they are both for the present?

Is it similar to how the two past tenses work in the indicative?

You can to read the use of the Present subjunctive here (in Spanish): http://babelnet.sbg.ac.at/carlitos/ayuda/presente_de_subjuntivo.htm

And the Imperfect subjunctive here (also in Spanish): http://www.mailxmail.com/curso-gramatica-nivel-avanzado/imperfecto-subjuntivo-usos
