When the pre-qualification lists 10-12 ipm, does that mean x it buy 100 as it states on the wire feeder; making it 1000-1200 ipm?
I think you might be confused about wire feed speed vs inches per minute of weld deposited. Wire feed speed (wfs) is measuring how many inches of wire are coming out of the gun per minute. Hold the trigger for 10 seconds, measure the length and times that by 6, and that equals your wfs. Inches per minute is measuring the length of weld. This is done per minute of welding.
Hogan's right. You're looking at inches per minute of travel speed (deposited weld metal).
