The ice tables are mainly used when we only know the initial concentration(s) and the equilibrium constant. Basically, we use ice tables when we are unable to just use the equilibrium concentrations and equilibrium constant to find the other equilibrium concentrations.
ICE charts can be used to find equilibrium molar concentration using molar ratios and the change in molar concentration if the initial molar concentration for either reactants or products are given and the equilibrium constant is also given.
To determine if an ICE table is necessary, look at the information given. Such as, if the initial concentration(s) are given along with a Ka or Kb value, then an ICE table is the correct method in finding the equilibrium concentrations and other information.
