ICE table

When do you know you have to use an ICE table?

If the question gives you the initial/final concentration of some of the products/reactants but not ALL of them, you will need to set up an ICE table. You use it (and the quadratic equation) to find missing values for the concentration of each product/reactant.

Whenever you are dealing with equilibrium and have unknown values, setting up an ice table can be helpful in order to know which parts you are missing as well as how to solve for them

Is the ICE table used purely to find missing concentrations?

The ICE table allows you to organize and solve for the change in concentration from the initial to equilibrium concentration, hence the name ICE (Initial, Change, Equilibrium).
