How did you produce these timestamps? Org-mode always includes a day of
week when it generates a timestamp. E.g., if I adjust the timestamp with
shift-up or shift-right, org-mode automatically fixes it to:

* <2015-08-11 Tue 12:00> Simple event, default duration

> - All subjects have got the timestamp in the subject

That said, even with the correct timestamp syntax, I can confirm that
org-icalendar-export-to-ics leaves the timestamp in the
headline/summary. However, placing the timestamp beneath the headline
works fine:

* Simple event, default duration
  <2015-08-11 Tue 12:00>

...results in...

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
SUMMARY:Simple event, default duration
DESCRIPTION:<2015-08-11 Tue 12:00>
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I believe this syntax for duration is incorrect. It does not even work
with org-mode's agenda. E.g., the agenda line looks like this:

  inbox:      12:00...... <2015-08-12 >-<2015-08-12 12:59> Event with specified 

The correct syntax for duration is...

<2015-08-12 Wed 12:00-12:59>

When I use that, the duration exports correctly to ics. See
http://orgmode.org/manual/Timestamps.html for more details.

Hope this helps.
