Default A/C Problem/Question

I noticed the A/C unit inside my house making a weird noise last night, something like water hitting something hot and making steam (unit was not blowing air). My temp was set at 74, and it read 71. I switched the unit off and noise stopped. I looked at the unit and immediately noticed ice all over the pipe that comes out of the unit (thats wrapped in insulation) and goes below the house.

Any idea what this is? I haven't needed A/C today so I haven't turned it on for any length of time, but it is blowing cold for the few minutes I've been leaving it on.

Stating the obvious, your evaporator coil is/was frozen. Leave it off to thaw.

Things to consider :
Like stated above, make sure your filter is clean.
If you have pets, the coil could be matted with pet hair. This is a narrow space, but pull the filter out and shine a flashlight up in the unit. Look for pet hair. If so, then get a coil brush and GENTLY brush the coil fins in the direction they run.
If either of these is not the case, you could be low on freon.
