  My apologies, I just discovered your email (from April) to the 
R-help list serve asking about ICC in psych.

ICC does not remove missing data but rather lets the ANOVA handle it. 
It is probably more appropriate work on complete cases (as does the 
icc in the  irr package).
that is

my.data <- na.omit(my.data)

I have just fixed ICC so that it will by default use na.omit and thus 
work on complete cases.    This will be in the psych 1.0.89 release 
which should be ready by this weekend.

You are completely correct.
