Of course it can be banked to pocket B using either english. I really think that the hit is easier using inside (right) english with this shot, as opposed to outside english. I shoot a shot that's very similiar to this shot playing one pocket with success and use inside english shooting it. The cue ball will stay close to the top rail and the ball will be banked toward my pocket, it's one of the most beautiful shots to see when executed well. Set the shot up and try it. Start with positioning the cue ball to the left of where it is in the picture, maybe 6" to the left and then if you hit it well move it only 3" to the left and try again. I think you'll be impressed with the shot and the action that takes place. I shot the shot about two months ago in Vegas playing for $2,000 a game, hit it just about perfect, hung the ball and the cue ball hugged the rail and almost scratched in the top pocket on my side of the table. There were balls on my side rail that snookered the hanging ball, what a shot. Extreme center axis spin.I think we had a very informative thread on this subject at one time but the WEI tables are all gone now.
Here's the shot I contributed to the thread, I may have even started the thread with this layout. Quite a few people didn't think the 11 ball could be banked back to pocket 'B'.
P.S. 11 is frozen to rail. It didn't come out that way when I saved the pic.

It sure looks a lot tougher in 3D:
