I spent two years in Finland, where the Gulf of Bothnia freezes almost every winter
In other words, the Earth already has an answer for you.
Both years I was in Finland the Gulf of Bothnia froze. It does pretty much every year. Regular trucking lanes are set up when it freezes between Finland and Sweden. It freezes a hair faster than in your case — if I recall, in about a 2-month period.
But that event explains what would happen to the oceans... to a degree.
Salinity isn't as even as you think One problem is that saline not only changes density vertically, it has moderate differences horizontally. This means your ice will freeze at different rates in different areas. This will contribute to...
Platelets due to water motion Since the water is moving beneath the ice, the ice will initially be in the form of platelets (you can see them in the image above). However, the platelets don't last forever for two reasons...
Photons are hot No matter how cold the air gets, those pesky photons still carry a wallop. Yes, you can get the surface cold enough that even photons can't cause any melting, but in the conditions you describe, there would be a minuscule amount of ice melt (and I really mean "minuscule"), but the result is that over time (SEE BELOW) the ice evens out. But they have help...
Wind is the ultimate sand paper And if the photons don't eventually smooth it out, the wind will. Wind and every grain of anything (including other ice crystals) blowing across the surface. I can only imagine the kind of wind that would build up out in the oceanic wastes if there wasn't soft, gooey water to absorb some of its energy. I think the world would see some terrific wind, way beyond what we ever see today. But wait! There's more!
And then there's the snow Falling snow will also cause the ice to smooth out. Now, you're no longer putting water into the air through evaporation, but the process of assublimation puts it into the air just as quickly. But to get real snow in the way you experience it today is unlikely. It's more likely that you'll get fine, crystalline powder or hail. I'm sure you know the difference between "wet snow" and "dry snow?" Yeah, only dry snow.
Now, all this suggests that you'd see choppy, ugly formations initially but, over time (and not that long, months or a year) you'd see the ice smooth out. Except...
The Earth's grumbly tummy hasn't stopped.
You still have volcanism. You still have earthquakes. You still have things that are going to break up the ice. What this means is that locally you can expect the ice to be quite smooth. Smooth enough to comfortably drive on.
But across large areas you'll have hills-to-mountains worth of ice. An every time one of those 8+ earthquakes happens — especially if it's on the coast where it can create an under-the-ice tsunami, you're going to get a lot of stuff breaking up. In fact, one of those tsunamis could rip up whole lengths of the ocean.
Which is cool!
Two more things to think about... "sea level" isn't the same world-wide. This is a wonderful complexity.
The surface of the Pacific Ocean stands about 40 cm higher than the Atlantic Ocean with respect to the 1000-decibar surface, and the North Atlantic and North Pacific stand respectively about 14 and 17 cm higher than the South Atlantic and Pacific. The North Atlantic is warmest and saltiest, the South Atlantic is coldest and densest, and the North Pacific is least dense and least salty. (See above link)
Should the ice get thick enough, the atmospheric pressure differences will become secondary, even tertiary effects. But the fact remains that there is a difference between the different chunks of oceans. Those differences could contribute to the existence of oceanic ridges, ice ridges on the surface where these transitions occur. Maybe the wind would smooth these out, too, but the existence of the different regions would lead to more ice breaking up.
An then there's the moon. If there's any liquid water at all, it's going to have tidal force. Like the pressure differences mentioned above, the thicker the ice, the less this is an issue... but they would also lead to the ocean never being completely smooth — unless you freeze it all.
While I believe there would be large swaths of very smooth ice, notably where the ocean is more shallow, I also believe that in the areas experiencing earthquakes it will be very broken up and whenever an under-the-ice tsunami is the result of an earthquake you'll see huge ripples of broken-up ice. The world would still be very dynamic.
