It will take some outage time, yes. But if you have appropriate number of
replicas and are upgrading one by one, you should be fine - the clients should
fail over to other replicas.

FreeIPA upgrade also updates the data themselves. Restoring old data and
configuration files on fresh F23 using full backup + running the upgrade may
work, but there may be also a lot of hurdles. It is not really a tested 
approach.
