You can definitely create purley 2D meshes in ICEM and write to Fluent.

You have to make sure you have LINE elements on all exterior edges of the mesh - for boundary condition application. So if you're using the automatic surface meshing (QUAD / TRI) having the bounding curves in the geometry should be enough - and you should get the LINE elements.

If you're using Blocking (HEXA) for the 2D mesh - you need to make sure you project all the bounding edges to the bounding curves.
