Is the egg collection procedure carried out in exactly the same way to the ICSI?

Yes, conventional IVF and ICSI differ in the way the egg is fertilized, which is to say, at the moment of fusing the egg and the sperm, but the remaining steps are exactly the same.

Ovarian stimulation, ovum pick-up, embryo culture and embryo transfer do not change at all. More detailed information here: In vitro fertilization and ICSI.
