I wanted to know if you knows about a “direct” train from Istanbul to Van let’says in april, may or june 2018.

There’s no direct train from Istanbul to Van, but you can get very close with only one interchange.
Please take HST from Istanbul to Ankara. Then take Vangolu Express to Tatvan. From there you can take a bus to Van. Please note that Vangolu Express runs twice a week.
