    In the settings Menu under Usage, it says Google+ has 219mb of 'Documents and Data'. The app itself is only 43mb.

    I don't want to delete the app, but how do I delete this extra 'data'?

    Is this what you’re talking about?

    Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > [iCloud mail account] > Documents & Data > [OFF]

    No I'm not talking about backing up the data to iCloud, I'm talking about removing it from my phone all together.

    Some apps say they're 10mb, but the 'documents and data' for that app are like 200mb+.

    How do I just delete the documents portion only and not the actual app?

    You can't unless the app in Settings, General, Usage has an Edit option like Safari.

    Document & Data on iPhone is including browser history, cookies, logs, caches of photos and videos, database files and more stored by your apps.

    The only way to delete them without deleting the app itself is to use tools which can access your iPhone app directory. For example, Copytrans, iExplorer, CleanMyPhone, and more.

    If you just delete the app and then re-download it, the documents and data will reset, thats the only way to get rid of it.
