Which will be harder

porting the new bits of kdevelop1.1 into kdevelop2.0
porting 1.1 then adding the new pieces from the current kdevelop2.0

There was a lot of work from the kdevelop 2 branch point (which was quite
some time prior to 1.0 IIRC) to the 1.1 version, so finding and changing (if
not obsoleted by new code) is going to be difficult.

I think the amount of work will be a bit of a toss of the coin as to which is
easier, but if a 1.1 port is done then you'll have a better platform to
continue developing kdevelop2.

With either of the two approches, kde2 changing will probably be about an equal
