So, I was looking into what I have here, in the event I get these new iPADs, released Oct 2018 (such as the IPP 11), I need to know which adapter should I use for fast charging, and the best cable for it.

The IPP 10.5 (I bought the Space Gray 256 GB LTE) comes with the 12W power adapter, and a short cable.

I believe it takes 3 hours for a full charge.

I bought this combo:

1) The 29W USB Type-C Power Adapter

And:

2) Apple Lightning Male to USB Type-C Male Cable (6.6' / 2 m)

With them I have fast charging.

I was wondering which power adapter would do the same for the new IPP 11.

The 30W?

As for the cable... no idea. I'll need 2 meters again.

Which USB-C cable? I can only find the one which is also lightning...
Any USB-C cable that's rated for PD (Power Delivery) will work. Apple sells both a 1 meter and 2 meter cable. Look for "USB-C Charge cable" on apple.com if you want an Apple cable.

That's just because the description was written before the new iPad Pro shipped. That cable is fine.
Wait, wait

I just found perhaps a better choice:
https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-USB-Type-C-Gen1-Cable/dp/B01GGKYVSY/ref=sr_1_10_sspa?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1542331218&sr=1-10-spons&keywords=USB-C+To+USB-C+3.1+ipad+pro+11&psc=1

The previous link was USB 2.0. This one is USB 3.1, so that means faster speeds while transfering files between the PC and this new iPAD?

It's 1.8 meters/6 ft, description says:
  • Connect USB Type-C enabled devices (MacBook, Chromebook Pixel, Galaxy Note 7 etc.) with standard USB Type-C 3.1 or 3.0 enabled devices and accessories (smartphones, car/wall charger, multi-port adapters etc.)
  • Ideal for charging and powering USB Type-C enabled devices, as well as syncing data, photos and music
  • Reversible design - easily insert the connector into any Type-C enabled device (does not matter which side is up)
  • Type-C port is half the width and one-third the height of a standard USB-A connector (slightly larger compared to Lightning or Micro-USB ports)
  • Up to 5 Gbps data transfer speed; power output up to 5V, 3 Amp
  • Certified by USB-IF to be compliant with USB 3.1 Gen 1; backwards compatible to USB 3.0 and 2.0; backed by an AmazonBasics 1-Year Limited Warranty
Will this work with the new IPP 11 to deliver fast charging the same way I have with the current 10.5?
