Plane to Train in Dusseldorf

Arriving at Dusseldorf at 7am in midweek April, and going on to Amsterdam by train out of the airport train station. Choices of two trains, leaving at 9:10 or 11:10. Assuming the arrival is on time, would 2 hours be enough time to get off the plane, collect luggage, go through immigration/customs, take the "sky train" to the train station, and get the train tickets? I plan to purchase the tickets from Deutche Bahn online, but would still need to get the real tickets at the station. Is the 11:00 departure safer, although i would not care to sit around the airport the extra time. Thanks for any input. John, Long Beach CA

We arrived at the same time in 2010. We had coffee and a croissant at the airport café to kill time. We were operating with just carry on, but if the flight is on time, you'll be fine.
