In my experience ICE doesn't create what I'd call noise.  It does soften the
image slightly.  I haven't tried ICE in Nikonscan 3.1 but Vuescan's IR
routine
seems to cause less softening than ICE IMO.  If you are really after every
bit
of sharpness, you'll have to live with spending a long time cloning spots
out.
I find with films like Provia 100F the slight loss of sharpness helps mask
whatever miniscule amount of grain there may be.  It's your call - I don't
have
the luxury of hours and hours to spot my hand.  IR channel cleaning makes it
possible to scan significant numbers of frames; any slight loss of sharpness
is
worth it.
