In my Apache config file for domains hosted on my site, I have a couple of Include directives containing redirects:

  Include /path/redirects1.conf
  Include /path/redirects2.conf

Would it be (appreciably) faster to combine these files into one file and so one Include directive?

It only makes a difference whilst reading (or re-reading) the config files. Unless you do that a lot do what ever is most natural and easiest to maintain.
