Hey, krishna13j
ICEM is too general, and the user manual is not detail and also there aren`t tutorials related to turbomachinery. So from the beginning it is very hard for me to understand the principle of ICEM, especially the block function and strategy. I can share you my learning experience which is not direct, as follows.
1) first, I learn to use gambit to generate turbomachinery mesh by using structure grid. In gambit, there is a turbo tool, and the user manual/tutorial are very detail and the mesh principle is easy to understand. So I try to use the turbo tool to mesh the turbomachinery. Then I try to use the general tools instead of turbo tool in gambit to generate the turbomachinery mesh. After this, I got very good mesh and understand the structure mesh.

2) Then I turn to ICEM. My practice in gambit provides very essential knowledge and understanding for structure mesh. This is very helpful for me to learn ICEM, especially to understand the block strategy.

To learn gambit, I use three weeks. And based on the experience on gambit, I tool one week to mesh the compressor by using ICEM.
There are lots of discussion for gambit and icem. You can search the difference between gambit and icem on this forum.
From the above it is my experience. And this may be not good choice for you. It depends on you.
Good luck.
