Because of in-app billing api, Google Play doesn't allow the app to be distributed to a few countries including a huge market - China. Is there a way to remove the IAP and submit that version only to Play Store in China without updating the current app in Play Store?

I dont know the answer to your question but I do know something about China (I have been living there for the last 5 months).

China is a big market. If your game is in Chinese Tongue
So if your game is purely in English then do not expect it to do well over there Smiley

Unless there is no text or speaking in your game of course Tongue

I believe you would have to upload a separate APK without IAP's and limit distribution to China.
