I traced out part of the IR2110 boost circuit for the 7500 watt inverter, the boost drivers are Tip41\42C emitter follower pair, each pair driving 5 x HY4008 parallel mosfets in one leg of the H-Bridge. No gate to source resistors are used here, just the single 5K resistor as shown.

The bootstrap diode UF4007 charges the upper bias caps to 12 volts when the lower mosfet turns on.
