Use this
F11 UTL_FILE.FILE_TYPE;
s1 varchar2(200);

LOOP
begin
  utl_file.get_line(F11,s1);
  dbms_output.put_line(s1);
exception
  when no_data_found then
  exit;
end;
end if;
end loop;

remove the end if from your pl/sql

it should be

F11 UTL_FILE.FILE_TYPE;
s1 varchar2(200);

LOOP
begin
  utl_file.get_line(F11,s1);
  dbms_output.put_line(s1);
exception
  when no_data_found then
  exit;
end;
end loop;
