I think the ICV is the big metal cylinder above the throttle body. You could just spray some carb cleaner in there to clean out any loose dirt, but this is usually only a temporary fix if the ICV is bad. Cleaning the ICV is usually only used to diagnose the problem, as in if you clean it and it runs better, change the ICV.

For future questions similar to mine, the 2001 740i does NOT have an ICV.
