Can doing intervals to improve your 1 minute and 5 minute power also improve FTP?

So I have a limited amount of time to train this year - usually just 5-6 hours per week. I've never placed any focus on the anaerobic stuff (as my e-wang chart will verify!). But since I've got such limited time to train I've been doing the following workouts for the last 2-3 weeks:

Monday: 1 hour: 7x1 Minute at 150% ftp
Tuesday: 1 hour: base or recovery (depending on how I feel)
Thursday: 1 hour: 4x5 Minute intervals at 110-120% of ftp
Sat: 3 hours total: 1 hour at ftp and 6-10 10 second sprints. 2 hours base.

Last Saturday my hour at FTP was the highest it's been. Could it be because I'm finally doing some anaerobic work?
