No reservations are available on Swiss inter city trains - they are not needed as the train service is very frequent, so it doesn't matter what train you choose to get to Basel.
As such, personally I would allow a bit more time in Basel, especially if the station is unfamiliar to you.
So yes, I'd get the 08.05 (IC962) from Interlaken West
I'm very familiar with Basel SBB and have been travelling on Swiss trains for 58 years, and even I would allow a bit more time, if only to stock up on food at the Migros supermarket in the station (my favourite Swiss shop - have been shopping there since before I can remember!)
