The 24 is a hotter plug and corresponds to an NGK 8 and your manual is listing this as a possible winter riding plug, which translates to only use it if you are fouling plugs in the winter. The IFR is so rare that when you plug it in Google only RC51 and CR450xs come up!
NGK - ND (Nippon Denso, not Denzo) Heat Range

The 11 at the end is for the gap, they are pregapped to 1.1mm (1.05-1.15) and should not be manually gapped or may be damaged.

If you are in the US go to Advance or AutoZone and get your plugs at around $9-11, you may also find equivalents to Honda oil filters in Purolator numbers as well as other brands at fraction of cost.
Went to the Honda dealership today to pick up some plugs. I had the NGK FR9BI in the RC. ........... Denzo VK24PRZ11 iridium?
