One of the suggestions is:
Avoid landing page redirects
Your page has 2 redirects. Redirects introduce additional delays before the page can be loaded.
Avoid landing page redirects for the following chain of redirected URLs.
I don't have anything in my htaccess for this, maybe I should? I do have one to add "www".This is what I have and there is 2 "redundancies" from the looks of it, but one is in a conditional so I'm not sure if I should keep both.

Code:
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
     RewriteEngine On
     RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^se7ensins\.com
     RewriteRule (.*) http://www.se7ensins.com/$1 [R=301,L]

     #     If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
     #     line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
     #     of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
     #RewriteBase /ip.board
   
     # IPS Rewrite Rules
     RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /(topic|forum|user)/ [OR]
     RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (^|&)show(topic|forum|user)= [OR]
     RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^/(topic|forum|user)/ [OR]
     RewriteCond %{PATH_INFO} ^/(topic|forum|user)/
     RewriteRule ^.*$ ips2xf.php [NC,L]

     RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
     RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
     RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
     RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]

     RewriteRule ^(data|js|styles|install) - [NC,L]
     RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]
</IfModule>

<IfModule mod_expires.c>
ExpiresActive On
ExpiresByType image/jpg "access plus 1 year"
ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access plus 1 year"
ExpiresByType image/gif "access plus 1 year"
ExpiresByType image/png "access plus 1 year"
ExpiresByType text/css "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/pdf "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType text/x-javascript "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access plus 1 year"
ExpiresDefault "access plus 2 days"
</IfModule>

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^se7ensins.com
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.se7ensins.com/$1 [R=301,L]
Do I need to add something or remove one of the www redirects?

Well it looks like you have the same thing twice in here. I believe there should only be one.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^se7ensins\.com
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.se7ensins.com/$1 [R=301,L]
