Let's your most hated person in the class suddenly popped up joining your group for a planned eating out. Now you are annoyed, and you said:

If I had known you ARE coming along, I wouldn't have gotten here really

Or

If I had known you WERE coming along, I wouldn't have gotten here really

This a 3rd conditional construction, after you applied (If I had) + participle, what is next? ARE or WERE

Third conditional does not apply to this situation since you are not going to explain two actions in the past which their sequence matters.

The correct form would be :

If I knew you are/were comming...
