Have you updated the chroot since adding experimental to the sources.list?

It may just be that apt hasn't fetched the experimental data yet.

I generally put the gdal 1.11.0 packages in my pbuilder-sid APT repo when
I need them to satisfy build dependencies. The pbuilder-sid repo is used
as an othermirror in my pbuilder chroots. But I also have explicit
experimental chroots.

Using the experimental chroot I get a different unmet dependency:

 libgdal1h : Depends: libhdf5-7 which is a virtual package.

We'll need to update gdal in experimental to build with the new hdf5 to
fix this. The alternative dependency change hasn't been built for Debian
yet, so a new gdal 1.11.0 build for experimental was in the pipeline

This doesn't solve your chroot issue though. What did you do to enable
experimental in your chroot? Just add it to sources.list and run
cowbuilder --update?
