Fundamentally they are both the same. It's been quite a while since I have installed HP-UX so I may be wrong ...
HP-UX 11.11 (or 11i as it was also known) was for the PA-RISC chipset, I don't think it, at least, started off being available for the Itanium (IA-64) chipset.
Support of the IA-64 architecture appeared (again, from memory) with the 11.23 release of HP-UX.
So, you have 11.11, which is for PA-RISC and HP-UX Itanium B11.31 ia64 which, as the name suggests is for Itanium. The difference, thus, is what chipset each will install/run on.
