if that website running in IE11 not on IE8 enterprise mode is the above code is ok?
I hope you have access to the web server, right? So, the goal is to make the server to instruct the IE browser, in every response, always switch to the very latest browser compatibility mode ("edge", which is not the browser name, but means the very latest IE engine). Nobody can be sure is that ok or not. Some site developed only to work with old IE, some only with new, some both. Depends on your particular web site implementation. But since you said, you had issues with not the IE11 mode (which is the latest, i.e. the "edge"), it makes sense to make IE always work in such mode whatever its setting and configuration is. So, if you make your web server to add that HTTP header to every request, the IE browser the end user uses should switch to the IE11 mode. Older IE browses should switch to the latest compatibility mode they support.
Please indicate if I understood your problem not correctly.
I have lot of websites which need to use IE11
so I have to build enterprise schema
