So I've been going through some approval books from about 1900-1910 that have some different cat #'s. There's a 1925 scott catalogue online with these numbers. for example there's this:

#33 A8 3c dull red type I (Washington) 3.00
a. 3c claret, type I 5.00
b. 3c orange brown, type I 15.00
c. Vertical half used as lc

I'm curious if this correlates to 11?

Most numbers have remained the same but there are plenty of differences as well.

Yes, what is now #11 was #33 before the catalog renumbering.
In the old numbering the postmaster provisionals were numbers 1 to 27
The 1847 issue were #28 and 29
The 1875 reprints of the 1847s (now number 3 and 4) were 29D and 29E
The 1 cent 1851s were numbers 30 to 32
The 3 cent 1851s were number 33
The 5 cent 1856 was number 34
The 10 cent 1855s were number 35
The 12 cent 1856 was number 36

The 1861 issue started with #63 just like today
