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
seems to cause less softening than ICE IMO.  If you are really after every
of sharpness, you'll have to live with spending a long time cloning spots
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
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
worth it.
