Typically in the textbook problems, water is seen in liquid form. Since liquid and solids are not included in ice tables, do not include water. However if water was in gas form and depending on the problem, I think you might have to include it.
Leave out pure liquids and solids. Water as a liquid isn't included, because it remains in excess. Its acting as a solute and the changes in concentration of water are so minute we don't have to account for them.
When filling out and ICE table, only include gases and aqueous molecules. In addition to the comments above, you want to leave our solids because you cannot really condense or expand solids since they are in a fixed state

In ICE tables, you leave out liquids and solids, so if that water is in liquid form, you leave it out. If that water is in gaseous form, you do have to include it in the ICE table.
