I'm afraid Impala currently does not take advantage of index pages when reading/writing data.
Index pages are part of the Parquet spec, so in theory, you shoud be able to write Parquet files with index pages (via some other tool) and have them be readable by Impala - but Impala will ignore the index pages.
We do plan on taking advantage of index pages and min/max/etc values, but we do not have a concrete target date for that feature yet.

Index pages are declared in Parquet format, but not actually implemented.
See code above.
