So I have gathered all of the necessary equipment and ingredients for a couple of batches. I am starting with a partial mash American IPA with OG of 1.061 and partial mash Chocolate Stout with OG of 1.057.

I have a few different yeasts at my disposal:
(1) Wyeast 1056 - American Ale (Liquid)
(2) T58 - Estery, Peppery Ale (Dry)
(1) Muntons Premium Gold Ale (Dry)
(1) WB-06 - Wheat Beer (Dry)

I was going to use the 1056 w/starter for the IPA and the Muntons for the Stout. Does anybody have a suggestion otherwise?

Sound like good choices. Nothing like 1056 for a good AIPA!

I think your plan is a good one. Munton's might not be my first choice, but given what you have at your disposal, I believe it is probably the MOST style appropriate for a stout.
Primary 1: Hasty IPA
Primary 2:
Secondary: Soured Golden
Kegged: American Wheat
Bottled: Belgian Golden Ale.
Planning: American Amber

Yeah, Muntons Premium Gold is the best choice for the stout. Don't use T-58 for anything but a Belgian-style beer. I just used it for two brews, a Kriek and a Patersbier (simple Abbey Ale), and it was delicious, but it produces quite the unmistakable character on its own.
