The AI appears to be able to blockade a planet *prior* to the arrival of its fleet? (perhaps on the issuing of the command to blockade?) I'm in a 'dirty' war with the Dhayut (ie war not declared, but relations very poor), and it's pretty consistent?

If I understand the mechanics properly, even though a planet may be marked as "Blockade", it is in fact not blockaded unless there are ships there to enforce it by blowing up the freighters and preventing them from landing the goods.
Freighters can run the blockade and deliver goods.

Correct Fideach. The empire implementing the blockade does need to send ships
to the planet being blockaded to enforce it.

True but it gives and early warning to the player and you can repsond before the fleet is even at the planet.It should be a suprise.

Blockades aren't really actions you perform in surprise when it comes to trade disputes.

Distant Worlds diplomacy doesn't always work the way it should, or empires react the way they should(From a human perspective anyways). Trade disputes don't always escalate to war, and rather or not you blow up the ships trying to perform the blockade on you and escalate it when they actually do reach the planet to perform the blockade is up to you.

Only time I use the blockade action is when I'm at war with someone, and invading the planet personally. Gets my ships to hold off any reinforcements.

Edit: Grammar correction

I am the same with blockade. After blowing up the defenses when at war, waiting for the colony to be conquered. It is one of many orders tried with the object of telling them to "stay here, kill on sight, but STAY", none of which has been very successful in the "stay" part.
