Is 11 APs and 2 Honors classes enough for MIT? If not, what can I do to stand out more?

Hi, I'm a freshman in high school. I talked to my counselor and outlined all the courses I'm going to take over the next 4 years, and I've got 11 APs and 2 Honors classes. Now, I want to get into MIT (and maybe Harvard) and I was curious as to whether or not my workload is impressive enough for these top universities. I'm also doubling down on my extracurriculars, but I'm worried I won't get in to my dream school(s). Any thoughts?

This is definitely a good number, most people at top 10 universities have between 7 and 12 APs, so this is definitely impressive to colleges. This isn't the only thing to worry about though, your extracurriculars definitely matter!
