WSUS does not push updates, but clients pull from WSUS. So yes, you can apply a GPO to just one OU that will direct those machines to contact WSUS.
Alternatively, use a scripted installation of ie11 as shown here: http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/how-to-package-internet-explorer-11-x64-for-windows-7-x64
That long article can be reduced to three steps:
Download ie11 setup
Extract setup
Use the disk command to install the cab

Windows Updates will install IE11 on Windows 7. IE11 comes with Windows 8.1. Without WSUS, let Windows take its course and allow the update when the computers are shut down.

I do not think you can manage a IE rollout without a proper WSUS server to do this

Thinking some more about this, if your users were able to deny (hide) the update, they should be able to unhide the update to put it back in the update stream.  Then the update should work.

For that many users a WSUS server is the only practical answer.  Here are the 3 key Microsoft articles to help you.

microsoft articles are a tough read...let me ask you this. can i turn on wsus for only certia users or ou's or once i flip the switch does the whole domain get affected

JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
I think if you turn it on with just all defaults, it will affect the whole domain, but I am not completely certain.

You could also deploy a management solution like Labtech or Kaseya, and let that manage things for you. That way you can approve updates. Labtech will let you specifically push out all approved (or just all) updates to a machine (or group of machines). Invest now for the long term.

Typo: My last line should have been about the dism command, not disk.
