will it upgrade by gp ? and do nothing for PC which has already IE11
Peter Hutchison

Yes, you can deploy an MSI package via GP and will not update pcs which have it already.
I also suggest you look a IE settings in Group Policy and Preferences to ensure all users have the similar settings.

It depends on the update as the code for IE11 will be applicable to Windows 2008 R2 or even 2012 as well as Windows 7 machines. You can use computer groups in WSUS console so that you can seperate the servers from the client machines and only approve the update for that group.
