Upgrading wheels and tires need little help an info.

I have a 2012 500 with stock rims an tires an was looking to go with 26” itp mayhems with new rims. Want to go with 26-11-12 in front and back to match. Are 11 to big for front or should I stay with 9’s in the front.

I would stick with the 9" tire up front. You'll have to do a couple modifications to get 11" tires to fit the front. Plus a tire that big will add to the stress and strain of the steering and suspension components. The steering would change as well and become more floaty for the lack of a better word.
