Yes you can jailbreak. But keep in mind you won't be able to restore back to 5.1.1 if something happens.

Yes.
Just Make sure not to accidentally update or restore to 6.0.1

I tried restoring my iPad 3 on 5.1.1 with no luck.

I kept getting "APTicket flashed cannot be re-used." My understanding is, if you're on 5.1.1 and want to restore back to 5.1.1 you can using Redsn0w, if you DIDN'T update to 5.1.1 via OTA and have your shsh blobs saved (locally or on cydia.)

So, I just said F it and updated to 6.0.1.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

You must have arrived at 5.1.1 via iTunes, not factory fresh or OTA
And you must have saved 5.1.1 SHSH after the iTunes update to 5.1.1
