After some research, it seems impossible to fully automate the import of ics files without a dedicated app.

User reviews
After you save the ics file, this app opens the Google Calendar in the right place, in the import+export option and the 'choose your file' for importing. It does not (currently) add the calendar info directly in Google Calendar, but it makes it much easier because you do not need to open the calendar and click your way to the import option, so it is very useful.
