Infrared conversion questions (Greg and Jim, looking to you for guidance)

Sorry if this isn't specifically a medium format question. I eventually will IR-convert my GFX50R when I upgrade to a newer model, but in the meantime I've been getting more excited about IR photography so I bought an X-E3 (with fuji 23/2 for $750, thanks prime day!) and plan to get it converted by Lifepixel. My questions:

1) Filter choice -- was leaning heavily towards Standard IR, but considering Enhanced IR (a little more color from visible light) for more versatility. Was wondering if you considered anything but Standard IR, and how you decided.

2) Polarizing filters -- I've read that not all of them work with IR light, have you tried? Especially interested in Breakthrough Photography's CPL X4.

3) How do you think I'm going to feel shooting the X-E3 and 23/2 next to its big brother the 50R and 45/2.8? I'm having mixed feelings already haha.

I think that's it for now. Thanks for any help!
