Yeah, other than ergonomics all Shimano Hydraulic brakes are interchangeable and will work with one another. I really wanted the new GRX di2 hoods and brakes but like you said, the upgrade is quite expensive so I went with Ultegra. The different brake hose kits are for the caliper end because the XT and I believe all post mount have a banjo fitting where the newer flat mount calipers like the GRX's have a straight threaded fitting. Just re-use the hose you have and all is good!
