Quick Noob Question

Let's say I want to use a Butterfree and it's EV trained and knows all the moves I want it to have at level 28. If I battle friends and it gets put at level 50, will it have the right stats for what I EV trained it on? I mostly only battle with friends and never on Battle Spot. Is it Necessary to level it up to 50?

It is necessary to level it to 50, though not for the reason you're thinking of.

Levels are only downscaled, not upscaled. So you'll be battling with a level 28 if you battle against them.

For a place like Battle Institute where levels ARE upscaled, your EV training will have the same effect as if you'd trained it normally to 50.
