So to be sure we would have to do an upgrade from
Foundation 2012
to Standard 2012
then from standard 2012 to Standard 2012 R2 in order to get IE 11.

Yes, that is the direction you need to take. Ensure you can upgrade from Foundation to Standard - I am not certain about that (need to look).

You might be best off to fully backup and install Server 2012 R2 directly.
